North Shore Cycling Gear Swap Off to a Blazing Start
Richard Juryn, Director, Northshore Mountainbike Events Society
Gear Drop-Off night one finished with the best start ever! We opened in Lynn Valley Centre Mall at 6:00 PM and almost immediately we had a line-up and several hundred items ranging from full bikes, to frames, clothing and parts.
Malcolm McLaws wheeled in shortly thereafter loaded up with gear from Andrew Shandro, Thomas Vanderham, Dave Watson, Team NSMB riders, Cory LeClerc and Geoff Gulevich. If you are looking for little used Pro Gear at amazing prices make sure to show up early on Sunday for the 1:00 PM opening. There is some unbelievable bargains to be had!
Gear Drop Off continues inside Lynn Valley Centre Mall on Friday May 5th from 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM and then all day Saturday and also Sunday morning. The actual swap goes at 1:00 PM Sunday and as I said - get there early if you want the best deals!
Big thanks and props to the following for donating draw prizes:

As always, 100% of proceeds from the Swap go right back into mountain biking initiatives on the North Shore. Recent work includes $7000 for new bridges on Bridle Path and $5000 to rework an ascent on the Camp Brick - High School Mountain Bike Trail.
Dig that gear out and come and see the smiling crew at our store front just down from Save-On Foods. Along with mountain biking gear we also take road, track and BMX, you bring it - we'll help you sell it!
Hope to see everyone there!:
