Community bike swap returns to Ecole Robb Road

Sunday, April 19 from noon - 3 p.m.

Ecole Robb Road is hosting the second annual Community Bike Swap on Sunday, April 19 from noon – 3 p.m.

Last year was a huge success, selling hundreds of used bikes with hundreds of buyers and sellers in attendance. We are anticipating an even bigger and better turnout this year. This community event provided an opportunity for cycling enthusiasts to sell and buy used bikes and bike gear, just in time for Bike to Work and Bike to School week in May.

There will be a wide variety of bikes; from cruisers, road, mountain, cross, kids’ bikes, run bikes, foldable bikes, trailers, tag-a-longs and lots of bike gear.

The bike swap began last year as a tie-in to promote Comox Valley schools’ efforts to increase active school travel and encourage students to bike or walk to school.
