2017 DC Bike Swap & Expo


Don’t miss the 3rd Annual DC Bike Swap and Expo hosted by Gearin’ Up Bicycles. Last year, the swap and expo was YUUUGE and Bigly attended by bike enthusiasts, cyclists, artists, mechanics, advocates, and folks just like you. They all gathered at Dock 5 @ Union Market to celebrate cycling, swap their bikes, buy great new and used bikes and accessories, and have a great time! This year we are returning to Dock 5 on May 21st 2017 to keep everyone moving forward on 2 (or 3) wheels!

The DC Bike Swap & Expo is a place for shops and individuals to sell your old parts and bikes or take advantage of unbelievable deals on all things bike related that you need for a season of riding. Buy, sell, hang out, shop, trade with industry reps, advocates, individual vendors, bike shops, manufacturers and like-minded cyclists!!

Admission is a suggested $5.00 donation to Gearin’ Up Bicycles, Washington DC’s only community refurbished bicycle shop, and supports our youth workforce development program. Whether you’re looking for road bikes, mountain bikes, triathlon bikes, BMX bikes, clothing, bike parts, cycling accessories, vintage, new or used, there’s something for everyone… all for sale! We will offer bicycles from private vendors and collectors, as well as shops from across the DMV. We will also have local artists, advocacy groups, a test ride area and mechanics on hand for all of your needs.
