Great Maine Bike Swap


The Great Maine Bike Swaps offer a great way to buy used bicycles at an affordable price. You also can sell the bikes cluttering your garage or basement and turn them into cash. Each year, the Coalition hosts bike swaps in Orono and Portland.

At the swaps, you can choose from hundreds of bikes, including hybrids, road bikes, mountain bikes, children's bikes, recumbents and more. The inventory covers all price ranges, so you're sure to find something that suits your budget. And you'll be going "green" by getting a gently used bike rather than a new one.

It is $3 to put a bike on the floor to sell it, and there $3 admission fee. (Persons selling bikes have free admission.)

Please check back for more information on registering your bike to sell it!
