The annual bike swap is back and coming soon Fri April 30 (3-6 pm) and Sat May 1 (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. To keep the event covid safe, the number of people who can enter the swap at a time will be limited. Masks are required as well as social distancing while browsing and shopping. The swap is hosted by Frog Hollow Bikes and Middlebury Safe Routes with support from the Town of Middlebury.
Drop off bikes and gear for the swap at FHB before noon April 30 and 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-Sat 10 am – 4 pm all year for you to drop off used bikes for consignment sale, to buy new or used bikes and to service and assemble bikes, but will have a larger selection of used bikes at the swap due to unclaimed missing and stolen bikes released to them by the Middlebury Police Department.
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. One will be raffled at the swap and bike registration forms will be on hand.
Middlebury Safe Routes monitors traffic patterns and student travel behavior, plans activities to teach bike skills and rules of the road, and recommends improvements to roads, parking lots, drop offs, sidewalks, crosswalks, traffic lights, signage, bus routes, bike routes, bike racks, and more.
