The Spokane Bike Swap Team has some big money to hand over to the Friends of the Centennial Trail group today. They’re not saying how much yet, they’re saving that for a news conference today at 11 a.m. The money comes from the 1st Annaul Spokane Bike Swap held March 24 & 25 at the Spokane County Fair & Expo Center. While we all expected the event to be a success, it was an even bigger hit than predicted!
Here are the numbers:
– Over 2,000 people attended the two day event
– 26 vendors were there
– Almost 200 consignment bikes sold
All money raised from the Bike Swap goes to Friends of the Centennial Trail. The check presentation is at Mission Park (East on Mission Avenue to Perry Street, turn into Mission Park parking lot by the Railroad tracks diagonal to Avista). The majority of the money raised will go towards the Trail Builders Fund. Mission Park is one of the gap projects slated to be worked on in the future.
With the success of the event, plans for the 2nd annual Spokane Bike Swap are already underway and include a larger space for the event and additional vendors.
