Smart Commute Week - Recycle-A-Bicycle Bike Swap

  • Old Town Parking Garage, 125 E. Eighth St., Traverse City

Sell or buy any fun & funky or plain & practical used bikes at the 8th annual Recycle-A-Bicycle Bike Swap. This very anticipated event kicks off Smart Commute Week and is the perfect time to become the new owner of a summer cruiser or upgrade a child’s bike.

The R-A-B Bike Swap is for anyone who wants to sell and/or purchase a gently used or out-grown bicycle or bike accessory. Accessories include bike trailers, hitches, bike racks and sometimes frames and wheels. R-A-B requires that all bicycles be in ride-able condition. The tires must hold air and the brakes and shifters must be in working condition. Small items like shoes, helmets or clothing WILL NOT BE accepted.

If you would like to sell a bike or accessory, the drop off is between 6pm – 8pm on Friday June 1st at the Old Town Parking Deck. Sellers receive 75% of the proceeds and the Recycle-A-Bicycle program receives 25%.

The swap is also in need of volunteers to assist in a variety of shifts such as with check in, check out and processing sales. We also need volunteers to help with security. If you’re interested in volunteering please contact Chris Deyo at chris@traversetrails.org or 231-941-4300.
