Bike Swap returns to P.C.

With what little snow Park City received this winter melting away, the mountain bike season is rapidly approaching. For those who need a bike or some other cycling equipment, the Young Riders Bike Swap is back May 9-10.

The event will take place at The Yard, located at 1251 Kearns Blvd., from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Swap organizer Julie Minahan said there will be bikes available in every shape and size.

"Every year, we predict we’ll have about 500 bikes," she said. "It’s always nice because we have kids’ bikes, adult bikes, cruisers, mountain bikes and road bikes and all the accessories."

Young Riders receives 20 percent of each sale, which the organization puts toward scholarship programs for riders who can’t afford the full program cost.

"We also like to support Mountain Trails Foundation, Wasatch Trails Alliance and other local trail groups," Minahan added.
