1. Why do 20% of the sales go to Roaring Fork Cycling? RFC is a  non-profit whose mission is to “empower youth through cycling”. We offer free after-school programming for any middle school age student in the Roaring Fork Valley, act as a booster organization for high school racing, and offer affordable camps, teams, and programming throughout the season. This is all made possible by events like the RFC Bike Swap.

2. How can I volunteer to help at the Swap? Contact

3. What kind of equipment can I bring? If it is a bike, we will sell it for you. For the 2024 swap, we are not selling table space for people to sell other types of gear.

4. How do I get my bike that did not sell? All unsold bikes can be picked up with your claim ticket from 2:00pm-3:00pm.

5. How much does it cost to get into the swap? It is totally free!

6. Who prices the gear? You are free to choose your own price, but we have expert staff on hand to help you put a competitive price on your bikes and equipment.

7. Can I bring gear any other time besides Friday from 4:30pm-7:30pm or Saturday from 7:30am-9:30am? Sorry, No. We can only accept bikes during these times. If you are a bike shop or happen to have A LOT of bikes, please contact

8. Does it cost me anything to put my bike in the swap? No – it is free to list.

9. How long does it take to check in gear? Anywhere between 10-20 minutes.

10. Do I have to pick up my unsold bikes on Saturday from 2:00-3:00pm? Yes! All items not picked up by 3:00pm become the property of Roaring Fork Cycling.

11. Do you accept donated items? Of course! In fact, this is the easiest way to drop off bikes and gear. We will happily take bikes that contribute 100% of the sale towards RFC.
