Bike Swap Raises Funds for Cycling in the Shuswap

The Shuswap Cycling Club hosted its annual Bike Swap during the Salty Street Fest. The bike swap was very successful, lots of kids and playful adults bought and sold their bikes.  

Thanks to all that bought and sold their bikes and gear through the swap. We raised $757 to use for upcoming projects and trail work! Thanks also to the volunteers! We had 9 volunteers helping in 40 minute shifts, led by Maya & Zakia who were kept busy running the cash box and stayed from setup to tear down.
