15th Annual Bike Swap

April 29 - 30 2023

The Swap

For the past 14 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, Chester Bowl and Duluth DEVO Mountain Bike Program.


Ways To Help...

Donate a Bike

100% of the proceeds from donated bicycles will be split 50-50 between the  charities, Chester Bowl & Duluth DEVO

Donated Bikes can be dropped off at Continental during store hours starting April 1st.

Sell a Bike

To sell a bike (must be in reasonable and safe condition) bring it to Continental Ski and Bike on the 21st 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. or 22nd between 10am and 6pm. Seller receives 75% and 25% of the proceeds are donated. 

Register to sell a bike here.

Note: All bike prices are reduced 20% on Sunday.


We are always looking for organized individuals to help with registration, knowledgeable individuals to help price bikes, folks to help sell bikes, and/or bike enthusiasts who just like bikes and want to help out.
