Bike Swap

This 3-day event began on Friday afternoon at the N Natomas Aquatic Center.

People could donate their bike(s) to a good cause or consign them for sale. If a bike was donated, professional mechanics made the bike rideable and safe. If that wasn’t possible, the Sacramento Bike Kitchen accepted the bike.

Saturday morning from 10-2, more bikes were accepted. William and Mellissa were part of the Jibe team who organized this first-time event:

It was a rather warm day as the shopping continued. Around 11 am, the shoppers thinned out … time to SLASH prices.
