Sell or buy any fun and funky or plain and practical used bikes at the 7th annual Recycle-A-Bicycle Bike Swap. This much anticipated event kicks off Smart Commute Week and is the perfect time to become the new owner of a summer cruiser or upgrade a child’s’ bike.

The R-A-B Bike Swap is for anyone who wants to sell and/or purchase an unused or out-grown bicycle or bike accessory. Accessories include bike trailers, hitches, bike racks and sometimes frames and wheels. R-A-B requires that all bicycles be in ride-able condition. The tires must hold air and the brakes and shifters must be in working condition. Small items like shoes, helmets or clothing WILL NOT BE accepted. If you are selling a bike, drop off is between 5 and 8 pm on Friday June 2nd at the Old Town Parking Deck. Sellers receive 75% of the proceeds and the Recycle-A-Bicycle program receives 25%.

The swap is also in need of volunteers to assist in a variety of activities such as with check in, check out and processing sales. We also need volunteers to help with security. If you’re interested in volunteering please contact Chris Deyo at [email protected] or 231-941-4300.

Saturday, June 3rd 9am-2pm, Shop the Bike Swap
Saturday, June 3rd 2pm-4pm, Pick up unsold bikes from the Swap
