Bike & Summer Gear Swap 

April 29, 2017 -
11:00am to 5:00pm
Bike & Summer Gear Swap - Golden BC

The GLCG Bike & Summer Gear Swap is back! 
This year we are stepping up the bike & summer gear swap, taking it to the next level. From its humble, honest, and genuine beginnings as a  grassroots back alley bike swap. This year we will be hosting the event at the Mt 7 Rec Plex and it is going to be a community-wide event!  There will be no commission on swap sales and no admission to get into the event! We are selling any type of summer sporting/recreational gear eg. Kayaking, Climbing, Fishing, Camping, Paragliding etc……. And of course lots of bikes!!! 

This event will host used Gear sales, Local Retail booths and vendors from the Farmers Market.  

At the Rec Plex we have the ability to test ride bikes on the pump track and will have bike savvy volunteers there to help with all your techy bike and summer gear questions.
