Mary-Allen Bike Swap #verycool

Extremely cool. This Saturday our neighbourhood is having a community bike swap.  We’re meeting at the park for an hour to swap bikes. I’m humbled to live in such a fantastic community.

I hope it becomes an annual event! What an awesome idea. Anybody else have neighbourhood bike swaps?

The picture below is of my kids. Lochlain’s on the rip-off Kettler Trike and Aerowyn’s holding her recently acquired Recycle Cycle’s special. Get this! Kids bikes from Recycle-Cycle’s are FREE. We saw similar bikes at our local bike stores for between 60 and 70 dollars, this was free and we’ll probably donate twice that every year to the working centre for such important work.

Subject: BIKE SALE – this Saturday

It seems like our kids are outgrowing their bikes as soon as we get them.

That’s why we are having a Mary Allen Bike Sale THIS SATURDAY, May 14 at the Mary Allen Park at 11:00am.
Bring your kids’ old bike(s), name your price for a quick sale and hopefully pick up a new bike at a good price.
Make sure you are the park by 11:00am.   We anticipate the bike sale will wrap up by noon so don’t miss out.
So if you are looking for a new bike, or trying to get rid of an old one – make sure you come out to the Mary Allen Bike Sale this Saturday.
See you then!
