Here’s something to mark on your calendar; the 1st Annual Spokane Bike Swap on March 24-25, 2012 at the Spokane County Fair & Expo Center. Go ahead, I’ll wait while you write it down.
The Swap, hosted by a team of civic leaders and partnering with the Friends of the Centennial Trail, is a great venue to sell your bike, upgrade your bike, and buy new and used bicycles and accessories. The goal is to enhance the biking community by providing an inclusive venue and affordable bicycles that can be used for recreation, health and fitness, and transportation. Proceeds from the event will be used to further the efforts of the Friends of the Centennial Trail, a non-profit organization.
There will be lots of local vendors, including Wheelsport, North Division Bicycle Shop, Fitness Fanatics, NorthWest Recumbent Cycles, Emde Sports, Bicycle Butler and Terra Sports. Several organizations will be on hand to answer questions and provide educational information. Spokane Transit will be demonstrating how to load a bike on a bus. And, East Spokane Kiwanis will also be giving instruction on the proper fitting of bicycle helmets.
Admission for this event is only $5.00 per person, 12 and under is free along with free parking! Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to noon. Here’s more info.
