Bike, gear swap scheduled for Saturday in Aspen
The Aspen High School mountain bike team will sponsor its second annual bike swap and gear swap Saturday.
The cycling swap event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the AHS cafeteria and on the front lawn.
Admission will be $2 per person or $5 per family.
All proceeds will benefit the Aspen High School mountain bike team.
“We are sure to have a huge variety of cycling gear and apparel, from high-end race bikes to townies, BMC and cruisers, along with a wide array of parts and accessories,” said Paul Stucki, coach of the Aspen High School mountain bike team.
He said bike shops in the valley will be present with new and closeout bikes, clothing and other merchandise.
Individuals selling gear can rent a table/space for $10 and provide a 20 percent commission from sales to the team.
Private vendors are responsible for staffing their own area, pricing their own merchandise, and they can stay as long as they like.
“So, get some friends together and clean out the barn,” Stucki said. “Or, just bring a bike and stay until it sells. We also accept donations if you have workable bike that you’d just like to find a home for.”
The Aspen City Council directed staff to move forward with the Burlingame early childhood education center, but decided it needs more information on the affordable housing units that are part of the schematic design at a work session Monday.
