Over 700 bikes are anticipated to be consigned and over 50 exhibitors, including ten local bike shops, will be present at this year's bike swap. In an attempt to promote safety, bike helmets will be given away to every child that buy and bike in the bike corral. Last year, 173 helmets were given away, and even more are expected this year.
The Spokane Bike Swap is presented in collaboration with Spokane County's Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) Efficiency Act. The CTR program works to reduce traffic congestion, air pollution, and petroleum consumption. One of the ways the CTR does this is by educating and getting citizens comfortable with riding bikes around Spokane County.
