Need a new bike? Need to get rid of a bike so you can buy a new bike? Don’t need a new bike, but want a new bike?
Well, consider visiting the Alberta Bike Swap on May 5th here in Edmonton. Here’s more info from the organizers of the event:
Alberta Bike Swap was incorporated as a nonprofit with the cycling-oriented mandate to support sustainable transportation, health and recreation. Our swap provides a safe venue to buy and / or sell a ready-to-ride bike. Keeping the swap a local community event we donate 50% of the profit from the swaps into local community cycling initiatives. All bikes not sold are returned to the owner if requested, or donated to Good Life Community bikes in Calgary, or Edmonton Bicycle Commuters in Edmonton. The swap is funded out of pocket by founders, Chris and Laura, who put our money where our wheels are.
The MS Society, the Ride to Conquer Cancer, and the Heart & Stroke Fund participate in the bike swaps. We also pledge $20.00 to any cyclist that brings a bike to sell at the swap for the Ride to Conquer Cancer or any of the MS Bike Tours.
