Hundreds gather for the 2018 annual Bike Swap
On April 21-22, Continental Ski and Bike hosted the Bike Swap for it’s 12th year in a row, with proceeds benefiting Head of the Lakes United Way and Animal Allies. Hundreds of people showed up to buy and sell gently used bikes in the effort to take part in a healthy lifestyle.
Food, vendors, and bike test drives were available at the Bike Swap as well as a free helmet with the purchase of a youth bike. Qualified bike “pros” were also available to assist in finding the perfect bike for every individual.
When a bike was donated, 100% of the proceeds went towards the two charities involved. When it was sold, 25%. This year, more than 500 bikes were sold and almost $12,000 was raised during another successful Bike Swap.
