On April 29, 2007, from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm, come join hundreds of others looking to either sell or buy bicycles at the Sullivan Fitness Complex (Gym). You’ll need to get there early because The Great Maine Bike Swap is a perfect outlet for those trying to sell and for those needing to buy a bike. This event is growing to become a premier, perennial kick off to the bicycling season and sandwiched between Earth Week and National Bike Month, its a great way to celebrate all of the benefits of bicycling –– for health, transportation, recreation and the environment. The Great Maine Bike Swap is a terrific opportunity for you to upgrade your ride and/or to find a friendly home for that familiar bike you have had for years. Bike shops will be there too selling their outdated and overstocked inventory as well as bike accessories and parts. Need a shop for advice, repairs or simply to connect to the world of bicycling?
