Annual Tacoma Bike Swap
The Tacoma Bike Swap is an annual event hosted every April. This exciting community event is free to attend and is great for people who are looking to buy or sell bikes and bike-related accessories. The Bike Swap gets over 1,000 attendees most years.
At the Bike Swap you can meet other people who enjoy bicycling and learn about great places to ride. Past years have also given attendees the opportunity to practice putting your bike on the bus, let kids practice riding in a bicycle rodeo, screen printing items from home with Stadium High School students, and more. Make sure you mark this event for next April!
