Bike & Gear Swap This Saturday, June 6

LOS ALAMOS – The fourth Annual Bike & Gear Swap this Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the Co+op is the perfect time to support your summer outdoor adventures and the local Tuff Riders – the local 501 c 3 nonprofit International Mountain Bike Association chapter. Drop off items you no longer use at the Co+op Thursday or Friday and purchase items Saturday for enjoying the outdoors this summer.

If you want to sell items, drop off equipment at the Co+op Thursday or Friday, June 4, or 5 between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m.. Ask for the outreach coordinator, Sandra West, at the customer service desk. Please allow time to fill out sale tickets and attach them to your items. The Co+op will store all dropped-off equipment in secured storage.

Sellers receive 85 percent of the ticket price for all items sold, and 15 percent of the proceeds go to Tuff Riders. The Co+op will pay sellers starting at 1:30 p.m. following the Bike & Gear Swap. Sellers will receive payments as cash for amounts under $100 and checks for amounts exceeding $100. Sellers who do not pick up their proceeds by 9 p.m. Saturday, June 6 will obtain a check via mail if an address is provided. Please pick up any unsold items between noon and 9 p.m. following the Bike & Gear Swap. Any items not picked up by 9 p.m. will be donated to a local nonprofit.
