Bike Swap another success

By
From page A12 | June 04, 2014 |

A big, big thanks to all the families who participated in the César Chávez Elementary second annual Citywide Bike Swap Event that took place on Sunday, April 6. It was a win-win situation for those who sold their bikes, donated their bikes or bought bikes at the swap.

More than 200 bikes were consigned or donated, the majority of which sold — all for great prices! The Bike Swap was a true community service effort with support from many sources. Business and local organizational support came from Ink Monkey, who helped us get the word with colorful, catchy banners that were hung around town. Then we had B&L Bike Shop, Blisworks and Davis Wheelworks all offering bike tune-up discounts to folks that bought bikes at the swap.

Apex Bikes was on site for several hours at the Bike Swap answering bike questions and doing bike adjustments; Green Bike Depot consigned a ton of bikes, bike lights and bike locks for us to sell (which the school got a percentage of); UC Davis TAPS sold quite a few bike licenses at the Bike Swap; and several UCD Iota Phi Theta Fraternity student volunteers came to help out, plus city of Davis Street Smarts Program Manager Rachel Hartsough and Bike Coordinator DK Kemp provided Street Smart bike safety information to distribute.

As for handling the bike intake, bike cleanup and bikes sales throughout the Bike Swap, a thank you to Davis Bicycles! School Committee volunteers in addition to many Chávez families plus several independent bike-knowledgeable volunteers.

Lastly, a big thank you to Debbie Davis with The Davis Enterprise for helping to promote the Bike Swap event. Since this was a citywide event, we could not have gotten the word out without their publicity assistance.

All profits from this annual event support the César Chávez Elementary Spanish Immersion Parent and Teachers. Thank you again to all who made this continuing event so successful and so fun. Hope to see you again next year!
