BIKE SWAP: Kids growing? Need a bigger bike? Want to get rid of your old bike? Need cash?
Want to support the Community Food Cupboard?
If you are looking for a good used bicycle then come to the Bike Swap on August 20thth and 21st at Battenkill Bicycles, 99 Bonnet Street, Manchester Center from 9:00am until 4:00pm both days.
Run like a tag sale, it’s a great way for folks to clean out the garage of old bikes or find a great deal on a used bike and benefit the Community Food Cupboard at the same time.
To participate, interested sellers should bring their sale items to Battenkill Bicycles at 9:00am on Saturday morning August 20th to register and set pricing. At 9:30am the public is welcome to stop by and browse through the bikes in search of that “perfect deal”.
There is no commission charged however successful sellers and buyers are asked to make a suitable cash donation, which goes in its entirety to the Community Food Cupboard.
So come on down! Staff will be on hand to help with any pricing or fit questions.
