Free Used Bike Buy and Sell Event

The Bike-It Committee is hosting a free bicycle buy and sell on April 27 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon
at the R.C. Austin Operations Centre at Trafalgar Road in conjunction
with the Town’s Earth Day Event.  This is a terrific opportunity to provide someone else the chance to make use of your gently used bike. Note that sellers must stay with their bikes and take away any that are unsold.

Sellers may price their bike at any reasonable amount and may
choose to give it away free to a good home.

Tricycles and other cycling equipment are also welcome.  The intent of this event is to recycle
bicycles, put bikes in the hands of those who need one and as a bonus, residents can clear out their garages in an environmentally friendly way.
