Bikes and bike art on sale this Saturday

This Saturday, bike lovers have two greatĀ opportunities to part with their money in exchange for bikes, bike parts and bike art.

The GABA bike swap starts the day off at 8 a.m. (officially) or unofficially when the sun starts to rise until 2 p.m.

This is the second swap at its new location centered at Fifth Avenue and Seventh Street just off of of the old spot on Fourth Avenue.

The swap is a a great place to find rare parts, affordable bikes or to sell your own bike.

There are some new rules for sellers this year, so if you are considering selling, check out GABA’s page.

Up next is the second VelociPrints bicycle print show, which starts at noon and runs until 9 p.m. Like last year, the show will take place at Borderlands Brewery located at 119 E Toole Ave.

There will be 35 prints priced at $40 each. A portion of every print will go to BICAS or Living Streets Alliance. In addition to the prints, pint glasses, water bottles and shirts will also be on sale. A portion of the merchandise sales will go to El Grupo.

A silent auction for an original Gary Fisher themed painting signed by Fisher himself ends at 8 p.m.

There will be food trucks throughout the day and a DJ in the evening.

Check out some of the previews of the artwork at the VelociPrints Facebook page.
