Sharing Wheels Bike Swap Sunday

June 6, 2019

Events in Everett

Last month we passed along a plea for folks to donate some time to restore bikes by the non-profit group Sharing Wheels. Now it is time for that hard work to pay off as the annual Kids Bike Swap happens Sunday from 11 AM – 2 PM in the back parking lot of Sharing Wheels at 2531 Broadway in north Everett

Here’s what you need to know.

Kids can trade in the bike they have outgrown and pick out a bike that fits them. Kids donate their old bike, and receive credit for the value based on its size and condition. A parent or guardian must be present at the Swap.

The credit can be used towards purchasing a bigger bicycle, which can cost extra.

Typically, when a bike is swapped, the family is able to take home their newly refurbished ride for $20 or less. 

Cash or checks  preferred. We also accept credit cards.

A free helmet comes with every bike – and we’ll make sure it fits!

About Swap Bikes

Bicycles with wheel sizes from 12-inches to 24-inches are ready for trading.

If your child needs a larger bicycle, we may be able to accommodate them.

All bikes are safety checked and refurbished by Sharing Wheels volunteers before they enter the Swap.

Swap Hours

No bikes will be swapped before 10 a.m. If you arrive early, please stay out of our “bicycle  coral.” If you arrive really early, we might even put you to work helping set up.

Before 12 noon, you must bring a bicycle to swap for credit to enter the Swap. After 12 noon, bicycles can be purchased for the value listed, without the need to trade.

The Swap closes at 2 p.m.
