2014 Annual NSMBA Bike + Gear Swap set for April 12

The Lynn Valley-based North Shore Mountain Bike Association is proud to announce that the 2014 edition of the NSMBA Bike + Gear Swap will be held on April 12, 2014 at Jaycee House, 1251 Lillooet Rd. in North Vancouver.

This is a great opportunity to clear out your closet, garage, or basement and also pick up some great deals on new and lightly used bikes and gear all while helping the NSMBA. You will find adult and children’s Mountain, Road, Cruiser and BMX bikes and gear.

Come for the swap, stay for the day! Our friends at Endless Biking will be running free biking clinics and demos at their open house, just down the street; they’ll teach you how to ride like a pro.

Further details available at www.nsmba.ca/swap and on twitter #NSMBAswap
