Bike Swap on Capitol Hill: Save the Date!
Bike Swap on Capitol Hill: Save the Date!

Why buy some newfangled bikes, gear and other thingies when you can purchase bikes for a fraction of the cost, find clothing and swap parts all in one place? If this sounds like a perfectly reasonable and practical use of a Saturday to you, head on down to the North Hall of the Eastern Market on April 2nd for the First Annual Pedal Pusher’s Bike Swap.  Hours are 8:30 am -2 pm and you can find it at the corner of 7th Street NE and North Carolina Avenue.

If you’ve never been to a bike swap before, it’s a great way to get gently used bicycles and other things on your wish list, as well as to mingle with the DC bicycle community. Seasoned bike swapper Chris Eatough of BikeArlington reports that these events are “fun and colorful.” Several bicycle-related nonprofits will also be onsite to keep you in the loop about what’s happening with biking in the District, and perhaps, how you can get involved.

If you’re interested in being a vendor, 10’ x 10’ booth spaces are available for the nominal fee of only $30. Used bikes, bike clothing and parts—and new owners to love them—are all welcome!
