We’ll be at The Bike Swap Next Week – Will You?


Get ready to head over to the UIC campus (901 W. Roosevelt Road) next Saturday for the Chicago Bike Swap !  What’s a bike swap you ask?  Well, let me tell you.  Its more than 75 bike shops, businesses, nonprofits, bike clubs, bike teams and bike people exhibiting and selling bikes, bike parts, gear, clothing,  along with panels, demonstrations, activities for young and old, and more!

  • The vendor list is far too long for me to list here, so just click on over to their website and read through the full list of vendors.
  • Mr Ding and I will be there with our cargo bikes (my Omafiets and his Yuba Mundo) as part of the mini Cargo Bike Roll Call – your change to take a look at the variety of cargo bikes available these days and to get a in a test ride or two as  well!
  • Both of us, along with Little Ding will be part of the 11:30am panel on family biking called Kids in the Saddle—Raising the Next Generation of Cyclists
  • There will be other great panels as well, on bike racing, bike security, and knowing your rights in a bike crash. See the full list of panels and demos here.

Get yourself on over to the Bike Swap ($10 admission, 10-5pm) and be sure to stop and say Hi!
