DURANGO – Durango DEVO invites the public to its 15th annual Bike Swap at Chapman Hill on Saturday, April 27.

The event will have new and used bike equipment available for purchase or recycling or donations and features hundreds of preowned and new bicycles, bike parts and accessories.

The 15th annual Durango DEVO Bike Swap will feature bike equipment for children and adults including complete mountain, road, gravel, townie and kids bikes plus bike trailers, storage and transport solutions, bike parts, cycling apparel, accessories and autographed pro gear.

The Bike Swap will be held at Chapman Hill Ice Rink from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sellers can drop off swap items on Friday throughout the day. Anything not sold must be picked up from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday.

The Swap is first and foremost a community recycling event, where old bikes gain new life in the hands of new owners. There will be a large number of affordable bikes and accessories to outfit any rider with a reliable, environmentally friendly form of transportation. Likewise, many world-class cyclists and pros sell bikes and gear at this event each year creating unique opportunities for collectors and other cycling enthusiasts.

The Bike Swap is possible thanks to generous volunteers. Volunteer shifts are available for anyone interested in contributing. No special skills are necessary and all help is appreciated. All volunteers receive valuable perks such as early bird shopping at the Swap.

The Bike Swap is the largest fundraiser of the year for Durango DEVO, a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing lifelong cyclists, one ride at a time. They offer team-based mountain biking instruction for area youth from age 3 all the way through adulthood.
