The Nelson Cycling Club is hosting its annual bike swap on Sunday.

Bike swap a great way to ride into the season

Nelson Cycling Club members will pay a lower commission at the Bike Swap

Looking for a new or different bike?  Need some parts to freshen up your current ride? Clean out your garage (or basement) and support the Nelson Cycling Club at the same time. Bring your unused but working bikes (mountain bikes, road bikes, tricycles, etc.) as well as any biking related equipment such as parts, clothing, shoes to the Bike Swap on Sunday at the Nelson Rod and Gun Club.

Drop off items you want to sell between 11 a.m. and noon. The doors will open for sales at 12:30 p.m. and will close at 2:30 p.m. Following the sale, pick up your cash and any unsold items between 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. All unsold items will be donated to charity. Please note that they can only accept cash and cheques for purchases at the swap. No plastic.

Nelson Cycling Club members will pay a lower commission at the Bike Swap. If you are a member, then 10 per cent of your sales will go to the club (to a maximum of $75 per item). If you are not a member, then you pay the club 20 per cent commission (to a maximum of $100 per item). There is also a $3 commission on all unsold items. If you are not a member, sign up at the Bike Swap and save.

This community-centered event is the biggest annual fundraiser for the Nelson Cycling Club. The club is a member-driven organization with the mission of promoting and improving cycling opportunities in the Nelson area.  While focused on recreational trail riding, the club also supports children’s programs, road riding, bicycle racing, commuting by bicycle, and bicycle tourism.

For more information, about the Bike Swap, call 250-352-6654. Check out the website at nelsoncyclingclub.org, pick up an all new trail guide book, and ride on.
