Bike Swap April 21-22, 2018

It's Bike Swap time!

We are proud to host the 12th annual Continental Ski & Bike "Bike Swap" supporting both the Head of the Lakes United Way and Animal Allies! The Bike Swap provides an opportunity for you, a member of our community, to sell, buy, and get excited about the summer riding season! We aim to promote a healthy and active lifestyle year-round, and this event can be a great opportunity for many to find either their first bike, or another bike to add to their fleet. Whatever kind of bike you may be looking for, or looking to unload, know that this will be a jam-packed weekend of bikes and fun, we'd love for you to join us.

Want to sell or donate a bike?
If you are interested in selling a bike here's what you have to do:

-Bring in your bike(s) at one of the following times:
Thursday April 19th between 9am and 6pm
Friday April 20th between 9am and 6pm
Saturday, April 21st between 8am and 9:30am

-All bikes need to be in reasonable working shape.

-When you sell a bike you will get 75% of the selling price, the remaining 25% will go to the United Way and Animal Allies.

-Remember, If your bike does not sell on Saturday, it will be automatically discounted to 20% OFF on Sunday. If you don't want your bike discounted, you must pick it up prior to 5 pm on Saturday.

-If you happen to have a bike that you would like to DONATE to the event, 100% of the selling price will go to the United Way and Animal Allies! These bikes can be dropped off at Continental Ski & Bike between April 1st and April 21st.

-If your bike does not sell during the event you will be notified by a phone call on Sunday after 2pm to come pick up your items. All merchandise not picked up will be donated to a local charity.

-We cannot accept clothing or parts as part of the swap.

Want to buy a bike?
You don't have to sell a bike to buy a bike! Come on down and let us help you purchase a fantastic "new to you" bike! Qualified bike "pros" will be here to help you find just the right bike to fit you and your needs.

-The sale hours are Saturday 10am - 5pm & Sunday 9am - 2pm.

-Sorry, no early viewing (as always).

-Cash or credit cards accepted only. No checks.

-All bikes will be discounted an additional 20% on Sunday April 22nd.

-If you are planning on test riding some bikes, please bring a helmet if you have one. We will have a limited amount of test helmets available.

Want to volunteer?
This event takes an estimated 600 hours of volunteer work! Any extra help would be great. If you would like to help out please email

Street Vendors and Attractions!
A few years ago we started up something pretty cool by closing down 1st Street from 14th Ave. to 13th Ave. in order to not only have a safe place to test out a bike with no car traffic, but also to allow us to invite some vendors, local advocacy groups, attractions, and food and drink options.
