To benefit Safe Routes Middlebury and presented by Frog Hollow Bikes.
The annual bike swap is coming soon! Saturday May 6 (9 am-12 pm) at Middlebury’s Cannon Park near Frog Hollow Bikes (FHB) rain or shine! Find the perfect new-to-you bike, sell that old bike that’s been taking up space in your garage all these years, or better yet, do both. It’s called a “bike swap” in the sense that people turn in bikes they no longer want to “swap” and buy a different used or new bike, but you can just sell or buy a bike at the swap.
From kid’s bikes to road bikes, full suspension bikes, maybe even fat tire or e-bikes, it’s all here waiting for you. Our staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and guide you to the bike best suited for you. The swap is hosted by Frog Hollow Bikes and Middlebury Safe Routes with support from the Town of Middlebury.
Drop off bikes for the swap at FHB between Monday May 1st and Friday May 5th between the hours of 10 am and 5 pm. Indicate if you want sale proceeds to go to you or be donated to Middlebury Safe Routes. A percentage goes to FHB. Frog Hollow Bikes is open Mon-Fri 10 am – 5 pm all year for you to buy new or used bikes, parts and accessories and to service and assemble bikes.
Remember to record your newly acquired bike’s make, color and any other identifying features in case it is missing to report to police and secure it with a good lock.
ALSO, check out our SALE on new apparel, bikes, and accessories.
