Roaring Fork Cycling, the valley’s newest non-profit organization that provides skills-based cycling programs, clinics and camps for kids, is hosting a bike swap at Crown Mountain Park near the BMX track from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 6.
The bike swap will help valley riders—especially parents and kids—find quality, affordable used bikes and bike-related parts, accessories, clothing and components for the coming season while selling items they no longer need. Roaring Fork Cycling’s swap is open to all types of bikes—from road to downhill, freeride to BMX—for all ages. Knowledgeable coaches, Aspen High School Team riders and volunteers will be on hand to help with pricing, bike selection and fit.
Sellers: There are two parts to this swap.
RFC sells – Bikes for sale can be dropped off between 8:00 and 9:30 a.m. Sellers will fill out a registration form and the bike will be put in a secure area. Price your bike to sell. No haggling. Cash only. If your bike sells, we will give you money (minus 20%) when you come back from 2-4 pm. If your bike does not sell, it must be picked up between 2-4 pm. You keep 80%, we take 20%.
You sell – If you’re selling accessories, parts, clothing, etc., you still must fill out a registration form. Then you can either rent a table from us ($20 for full table – tables can be shared at your will) or you can bring your own table. Either way, you must stay with your table and sell, haggle, bargain however you want. The only thing we ask is that you estimate your sales and give RFC 20% per our agreement. You keep 80%, we take 20%. Ps. If you would rather sell your bike on your own, you may choose this route.
Buyers: Please plan ahead – cash only.
The swap is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This a cash only swap. We realize this may cause some consternation, but it will streamline the process for everyone at the swap.
For more information about the bike swap, contact Heath Johnson at 970-618- 8447. Or email us at [email protected].
The revenue split (80% to seller/20% to RFC) from the bike swap will help support the Roaring Fork Cycling’s valley-wide bike programs, including camps and clinics at Snowmass Village Recreation Center this June through August for kids in 1st through 8th grade and middle school and high school girls. Information and registration for these bike programs will be available on-site during the bike swap and is also found at http://www.roaringforkcycling.org.
Beneficiaries also include Crown Mountain BMX and the Aspen/Basalt High School Mountain Bike Team.
