Riverside Cycle Owner, Aaron Millett is proud of how this important annual community event and its growth in terms of awareness, volunteers and increased donations for the Jimmy Fund and the Coastal Trails Coalition. The goal of the bike swap is to raise money to help in the fight against cancer and support our local bike trails, while providing a venue for people to buy and or sell quality used bikes in good condition. About 75 percent of those taking part in past bike swap events, are customers who enjoy finding great deals and supporting our fundraising efforts. Many of the repeat event patrons are parents looking for gently used bikes for their children, or looking to part with older bikes their kids have outgrown. Some just stop by to donate bicycles. Regardless of the motive, it’s a great opportunity for customers and our fundraising efforts. “I think it’s a win-win.”
