13th Annual Duluth Community Bike Swap

April 27-28, 2019

The Swap

For the past 13 years,  Continental Ski & Bike has been helping the community of Duluth stay healthy and active by hosting and facilitating a yearly community driven bike swap. We have grown the swap from re-homing dozens of bikes the first year to last year turning over more than 500 bicycles to new homes and raising almost $12,000 for local charity in the process. 

The swap not only helps local bicycles find new loving homes, but it also helps to keep them out of landfills, supports healthy living, makes people smile and supports our local charities, Head of the Lakes United Way and Animal Allies Humane Society.
