The Columbia Valley Cycling Society (CVCS) is geared up to hold its fourth annual Bike Gear Swap on Sunday April 10 at the community hall in Invermere. The event will give people the chance to get some new bike gear or sell items they no longer need.

To be a part of  the sale, people should bring their gear to the community hall between 9 and 11 a.m. There will be a bike mechanic on-site to ensure that all bikes are running well and can be adjusted for the size of the rider. The doors for the sale will open at 11:30 a.m. with the sale ending at 1 p.m.

At that point sellers can come back to pick up their unsold gear and/or cheque for what has been sold. The CVCS is a non-profit volunteer group that is dedicated to developing, promoting, practicing and protecting mountain biking in British Columbia.

Since 2006 the group has been involved with protecting local trail systems and also organize local rides for bike enthusiasts of all ages.  For more information about the group you can check out its website at www.columbiavalleycyclingsociety.org.
