101 Things To Do in Southeast Seattle: #47 Bikeworks Bike Swap
Bikeworks’ annual Bikeswap is coming on May 7, 10-4pm, just in time for a summer full of bike riding (oh, to be a kid again on long summer days!). This is a great event where you get to upgrade your kid’s bike and support a great community resource. Both of my kids ride bikes from past swaps, and a word to the wise, it helps to get there early and be ready to stand in line. You’ll need to bring your old bike and your checkbook. The Bikeworks mechanics give your bike a look over and then give you a credit. You then go to this large field of bikes and start shopping for the perfect bike. If you don’t have a bike to trade in, that’s ok, you can come to just shop.
