The North Shore Outlook Cycling Gear Swap
Whether you are new to the sport of mountain biking or a veteran rider, you don't have to spend a small fortune on quality bikes, equipment, and clothing. Just check out The North Shore Outlook Cycling Gear Swap on Saturday, May 28. It costs just $2.00 to get in, and you can fill out a ballot to win some great draw prizes, including a full day ride lesson for 2 from Mad March Racing and a 4 hour ride on the North Shore with Wade Simmons and Geoff Gulevish! Check out the complete list of draw prizes here.
Sell that bike that no longer "turns your crank" and find one that does, or swap that cycling jersey that doesn't quite fit anymore for something different. The North Shore Outlook Cycling Gear Swap is THE place to outfit the whole family for a new season of mountain biking with quality used bikes, clothing and equipment all in one stop.
All proceeds donated to the Northshore Mountainbike Events Society's Legacy Fund, which helps to provide wilderness access for people with disabilities, trail repair and maintenance, mountain biking facilitation and planning, as well as education and awareness campaigns.
Note: There is a $2.00 per item registration fee & 15% service charge on all items sold.
