Over 550 bikes were sold at last year’s event!

The Bike Swap includes local community organizations, vendors, food, bike test drives, and a vast selection of used bikes to shop from.

Everyone can take advantage of discounted prices at the Bike Swap. Let our qualified bike “pros” help you purchase a fantastic “new to you” bike! We will help you find the right bike to fit you and your needs.

Selling a bike: Bike check in begins April 19th, 20th at 9:00 am and April 21st from 8:00-9:30 am. Folks who wish to sell their bike will receive 75% of the selling price. The remaining 25% of proceeds will be split evenly with local Duluth charities, Head of the Lakes United Way and Animal Allies Humane Society.

Bikes that do not sell on Saturday will be automatically discounted by 20% on Sunday. (If you don’t want your bike discounted, you must pick it up prior to 5 pm on Saturday.) Sorry, we cannot accept clothing or parts as part of the swap.

Have a bike you’d like to donate? Bike donors make an even bigger impact when they give 100% of the proceeds of their bike sale to benefit Head of the Lakes United Way and Animal Allies Humane Society.

Last year, the event raised over $12,000 with proceeds being divided equally between HLUW and AAHS.
