June 13: Bike Swap at the Veterans’ Memorial Building

It’s bike season again, thank heavens—the time of year when everyone pulls out their road, mountain, fixed gear and tandem bikes and realizes one of two things: that there’s parts and gear that they need, or that there’s parts and gear that they don’t need. The Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition Bike Swap brings these two together for a big day of cranks, brakes, tires, clothes and even some bike-related arts and crafts. Need a 10mm cotter pin for a 1973 Motobecane? A Huret derailer for a mixte-frame Peugeot? A replacement fork for a 21-speed Trek? The Swap’s the place. With vendors and tables and a kid’s bicycle safety skills rodeo, it’s the best way to get your bike and riding skills in tip-top shape. If you’ve got an extra bike to sell, bring it along and put it up for sale for just $5. Stop on by and find some treasures on Saturday, June 13, at the Veterans’ Memorial Building. 1351 Maple Ave., Santa Rosa. 9am to 2pm. Free. 707.545.0153.Gabe Meline
