Biking season is here, and it’s time to think about spring cleaning your gear.

All bikes will be accepted, as well as parts, and any other random bike or outdoor gear you just don’t need any more at the bike and gear swap on May 26 in the Elks Hall in Fernie.

A percentage of the sales will go to the Fernie Mountain Bike Club.

There will also be a bikers’ barbecue from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and the bike movie ‘Strength in Numbers’ will play at 8 p.m. $10 non-members, $5 members.

For those wanting to get pedalling, there will be a community bike parade and ride for all ages starting at 2 p.m. and also a Townie Toonie ride at 7 p.m. from Straightline. Bring $2 and a can of food to donate to the Salvation Army.
