Annual Young Riders Bike Swap May 4, 5

Young Riders

The annual bike swap, supporting the Park City-based Young Riders Youth Cycling Program, starts this weekend. 

Wednesday was the last day for early drop-offs at JANS and White Pine Touring, for those who are interested in selling items at the swap. People can check in their equipment online or in person, then drop it off at The Yard on 1251 Kearns Blvd on Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m. and Friday noon to 8 p.m. Executive Director Heinrich Deters recommends checking in online for the most efficient process.

"Thursday and Friday, especially Friday evening, the check-in is actually somewhat laborious, just because there's so many people there—so this speeds you up," Deters said. "It's kind of like the fast track at the lifts; you kind of fast track in, you print the things and you’re out." 

The swap accepts just about anything cycling-related—bikes, helmets, jerseys, trailers. Deters requests, though, if you’re going to bring something, just make sure it still works.

"We really encourage because a lot of people don't put their pedals on, and we have extra pedals that are there that we put on the bikes, so people can test ride, but a bike without pedals or a flat tire gets passed by pretty quickly," Deters said. "So, you know, bring it in good condition."

The swap is at The Yard this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 20% of the profits go to the Young Riders for scholarships and outreach efforts. For more information, visit youngriders.com.
