Get your comfy shoes on and your coffee ready as it’s nearly time to get in line for the annual bike swap.
The Rundle Mountain Cycling Club will hold its annual Bike Swap at Devonian Properties’ Canmore Crossing on Railway Avenue, Saturday, April 18 from noon to 3 p.m., but club member Pete Naff said Wednesday he expects the line to begin forming early.
“People start lining up around 9 a.m. Usually it is a beautiful day and people spend the morning hanging out and drinking coffee,” he said.
While the swap is certainly a good place to find a high-end machine, it is also a great place to find town bikes or bikes for the kids.
“There are certainly are some toys coming in, but there are also economical choices, bikes that are not at the front end, but still have some life in them,” he said.
The swap also usually has gear, parts and clothing.
Drop-off takes place from 9-11 a.m.
As the Bike Swap is a fundraiser, the RMCC takes a 20 per cent commission on all sales to a maximum of $250.
The club can accept credit cards, debit and cash, but no cheques.
