November 4th will be the fourth bike swap put on by the Community Bicycle Network. The swap is a fundraiser for CBN bike recycling and education projects. This year CBN is fixing up a number of bikes for sale and so are the Bike Pirates. You can expect to find some nice, cheap bikes, plus people selling higher end bikes.
Attached is a poster for the event. Please help us out by printing it off and posting it in your local cafe, restaurant or bike shop. Please also send an email announcement to all your bike friends!
Arrive early to drop off your gear, consign it with CBN and they'll sell it for you. Sellers will need to come back by 3 p.m. to pick up their earnings and any unsold goods. Anything that isn't picked up without prior arrangement becomes the property of CBN - which isn't so bad because it will go to a good cause!
8-10am - Drop off bike gear for sale
10-2pm - Buy bike gear
2-3pm - Pick up proceeds and unsold gear
Mountain Equipment Co-op - on the west side of the building, next to Receiving, at 400 King Street West, Toronto.
CBN requires sellers to show identification and to sign a consignment form with 15% of all sales going to support the Community Bicycle Network's bike recycling and education programs.
Volunteers! CBN will need volunteers to help keep the space secure and to help buyers and sellers throughout the day. Please contact CBN if you are interested in filling in a time slot between 7am and 4pm - for an hour or even all day.
