Portland VeloSwap 2009: Get Your Gear On
Mark your calendars for January 10, 2009 and get ready for the 1st annual Portland Velo Swap. Based on the press release, it sounds like a Portland-style cycling swap meet on
crack, I mean beer. Yeah, that’s it – a drunken cycling-related swap meet to end all swap meets. Portland style.
Frankly, I’ve never been to an event at Roots Brewing Company that didn’t totally kick ass (think Cross Crusade kickoff party and Bike Craft 2008!), so I’m going to shine up my winter booties and spin on down. See you there?
Here’s a little bit more about the event. (Check the website for full details including how to reserve a table if you’d like to unload all your tired 2008 crap on some unsuspecting victim.)
Portland is for cyclists and 2009 is for bargain hunters. New & used bicycles, components, and anything else related to cycling at the 1st Annual Portland Veloswap on January 10th, 2009.
Upgrading, selling, or wanting to trade cycling equipment this event is for you!
Portland, Ore. Cycling in the winter may be for the hardened and seasoned cyclists, but for some that means clearing out the old parts, upgrading, or selling the past seasons cycling gear.
