One day bike buy and sell.
Saturday, May 3, 2014
City Centre Parkade, 340 10 Ave SW
The sale runs from 2:30 pm until 4:00 pm. Bike intake runs from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Alberta Bike Swap is a non-profit project that puts on one day bike buy and sells in four cities in Alberta, Calgary is our home. Not a great business model: half of the profit is donated to the community, the other half goes toward putting on more bike swaps.
It is a consignment sale, with a very small consignment fee (12.5%), 12-15 buyers/bike, and a 95% sell rate. As a true non-profit (actually deficit-profit), we pledge $50.00 to anyone in the Ride to Conquer Cancer, or any MS Tour, if they bring in a bike to sell. With over 8,000 attendees at the bike swaps last year, we donated $4,000.00 to local groups, such as Bike Calgary, and we're paying for the local artist to design a poster for Cyclepalooza. We will have a parts bin and a donation rack for Good Life Community Bicycles and Two Wheel View.
Every bike at the swap helps us do the right thing for our community. Please participate.
