12th Annual Pierce County Bike Swap
Thank You for a Great Bike Swap
Thank you to everyone who made the 12th Annual Bike Swap a success. Hundreds of people came to the Swap on May 6 to buy and sell bikes for themselves or their loved ones, engage with the Map Masters to find good bike routes, test their ridings skills at the Bike Rodeo, and engage with vendors including a bicycling balloon artist (using biodegradable balloons!). There were plenty of smiling faces.
