Take life by the handlebars…
and start pedaling this spring and summer! A great way to get ready is to attend the Spokane Bike Swap on April 12 & 13 from 9am – 3pm at the Spokane County Fair & Expo Center.
· Have a bike you don’t want anymore? Donate It
· Have a bike you’ve outgrown or upgraded? Sell It
· Want to buy a new or used bike? Shop It
This event is a one-stop shop! From kids bikes and road bikes to tandems and tri-bikes, great deals await and over 600 used bikes are expected in the Bike Corral. If the Bike Corral doesn’t have what you’re looking for, 10 local bike shops will be on hand with competitively-priced bikes and accessories. Plus you can connect with local bike clubs, biking events, learn how to put your bike on an STA bus and more. The Spokane Bike Swap & Expo is the place to be on April 12 & 13!
To sell a bike, register it online today at www.SpokaneBikeSwap.com and check it in on Friday, April 11 from 3-8pm. Come back Sunday after the Bike Swap ends and pick up your check or unsold bike. Get pedaling this spring and support a great community event! All proceeds benefit The Friends of the Centennial Trail.
Other great healthy options to get you to work is walking, in-line skating and riding the bus. For trips 3 miles or less, walking and in-line skating are great ways to combine your commute and exercise for the day. Walking to a nearby bus stop is also another healthy option.
