You see them everywhere – whether they’re sprawled about the Oregon State University campus, or parked outside local storefronts. In a small town like Corvallis, bicycles are a staple of transportation for students and residents alike. And thanks to shops like The Bicycle Collective, everyone has easy access to quality used bikes and repair education.
The Bicycle Collective, Corvallis’s DIY and nonprofit bike shop, is known not only for their commitment to education of customers in properly caring for their bikes, but for the events they hold for the community. One event in particular, the Bike Swap, is just around the corner.
The 7th Annual Bike Swap is a one-day only consignment sale, with proceeds benefiting The Bicycle Collective and their events for bike maintenance and education. The event is host to buyers and sellers alike; If you’re a buyer, you’re more than likely to find a top quality used bike for a great price. If you’re fortunate enough to already own a bike, or have a spare you’re looking to get rid of, The Bicycle Collective will sell your bike and give you 75 percent of the sales price.
Do you want to sell, but can’t make it to the actual event? Don’t worry, you can drop off your bike, trailer, even your tag-a-longs, to The Bicycle Collective up to a week before the event. This event will be held for one day only, so make sure not to miss out on this great opportunity.
The 7th Annual Bike Swap will be held on Saturday September 23, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event is located on 500 SW Madison Ave., in Corvallis. For more information, visit the event page on Facebook, or call the store directly, at (541) 224-6885.
