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.
You can choose whether it is 10 per cent, 20 per cent, 50 per cent or 100 per cent and you can also choose to cap your donation at a maximum of $250.
Bikes can be dropped off Friday evening between 7 and 9 p.m. or Saturday morning between 9 and 10 a.m. The sale will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and items can be picked up between 2 and 3 p.m.
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.
Anyone wanting to get more involved with the club should attend the AGM at 3 p.m. to learn about the club’s activities, and elect the next board of directors.
Volunteers are needed to help out with the bike swap, barbecue and the community bike parade/ride. If you can help out please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
