Shop for used or new bikes and biking-related gear, or sell your old bicycles, at this popular annual event on Saturday, April 22 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Spokane County Fair and Expo Center, which has plenty of free parking. The Spokane Bike Swap is a one-stop shop to sell, upgrade, and buy new or used bicycles and accessories. Check out the local bike shops, bike clubs, and bike events happening in our community, plus much more. And you won’t want to miss the famous bike corral, where you can find all kinds of bikes, from kids’ bikes, road bikes to tandems and tri-bikes. Great deals await with a great selection. Nearly 1,000 used bikes are expected in the Bike Corral consignment area. Plan on attending and get ready to grab life by the handle bars and start pedaling this spring and summer!
Want to sell your bike? Interested sellers can register their bike online at www.SpokaneBikeSwap.com starting March 15. Registering early will help expedite bike check-in, which is on Friday, April 21, from 3-7 p.m. Bike registration is $5 and payable when you register or when you check in your bike on Friday. The registration fee will be waived if you donate a bike. Kids’ bikes are in huge demand too. The registration fee is waived on kids’ bikes with 20” rims or smaller that are priced $50 or less. For all bikes that sell, a 10% consignment fee will be assessed.
“We are thrilled to announce the Spokane Bike Swap is now a non-profit organization,” says LeAnn Yamamoto, Spokane Bike Swap Chair. “The proceeds from the event will benefit regional charitable organizations, and we are excited about the positive impacts it will have on the community while promoting healthy and active living for all.” Want to get involved?
