Chávez Bike Swap benefits sellers, donors and buyers

Bicyclists from throughout the community are invited to attend the second annual César Chávez Bike Swap, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at the elementary school, 1221 Anderson Road.

“This is turning into a true community event as more bike supporters are joining the effort,” says organizer Jill Bonner. “The city of Davis Street Smarts Program will be passing out educational information and UC Davis Transportation & Parking Services will be selling bike licenses, plus many of the local bike shops are giving bike tune-up discounts for bikes purchased at the Bike Swap.”

Last year, as a first-time fundraiser for Chávez Elementary School, more than 100 bikes were sold in both children’s and adult sizes, plus bike trailers and joggers.

“It was a win-win situation, with some getting money for a bike that they weren’t using and others buying a bike at an affordable price,” Bonner says.

Again this year you can:

Sell your bike on consignment. Just drop bikes off between 3 and 6 p.m. Saturday or 7 and 9 a.m. Sunday. If the bike is sold, the school will keep 25 percent of the purchase price and the seller gets the rest. The 25 percent donation to the school is tax-deductible, Bonner says.

* Donate your bike. Drop-off times are the same, but the school gets 100 percent of the sales price and donors get a tax deduction for the value of the bike.

* Buy a bike from the selection available at affordable prices.
