Editor’s note: There were three great bicycle events happening this weekend. Be sure to check back later today for updates on the El Grupo Scavenger Hunt and the Velociprints Bicycle Art Show.
According to organizer Greg Yares, construction on the streetcar will prevent anyone from using Fourth Avenue for events for the next several years. He said even when the streetcar is finished, it’s likely only the Fourth Avenue Street Fair will be allowed to close the street.
Yares said he’s working on securing 9th
Avenue Street west east of Fourth Avenue for the spring swap on April 15 and perhaps for all future swaps.
He’s hoping the new location will cover more distance and he is planning to allow more people to pay a $100 fee for a reserved spot. Both those things should make it easier for people to find space at the swap and prevent people from camping out to get a spot.
Check out the photos from the final GABA Bike Swap on Fourth Avenue.
