The16th Annual Bike Swap to benefit Trips for Kids is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, July 7-8 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California. The ever- popular event will be part of the Cougar Mountain Classic, an annual festival of pro and amateur road and mountain bike racing, with a large sports expo and special events for the whole family.
The swap features hundreds of donated new and used adult's and kids' bicycles, accessories, clothing, and novelty items.
"Each year individuals and companies within and outside the bicycle industry donate product to or participate in our annual fundraiser," said Trips for Kids' Director Marilyn Price. "We are delighted to offer cyclists one of our biggest swap meets ever."
Supports of the swap may reserve a space to sell used and overstocked bikes and bike-related products, donate items for Trips for Kids to sell (tax deductible), or simply make a financial contribution. Proceeds from the Swap support Trips for Kids cycling programs for underserved youth in the San Francisco Bay Area and across North America. The sale of donated merchandise covers sixty percent of Trips for Kids annual operating budget.
Admission is free; parking is $10 per vehicle. For more information on the swap, visit www.tripsforkids.org. For more info on the Cougar Mountain Classic, visit www.cmclassic.com.
