Spring is upon us and for many residents that means dusting off the seat, pumping up the tires, and biking the trail. Are you thinking of upgrading to a new set of wheels this year?
Perhaps you’re not biking much anymore and would like to sell. Or maybe this is the summer you get your first bike and will explore all the great paths starting right at our doorstep.
If any of these sound like you, then join the Park Tower Bike Swap! The Bike Swap is a simple way to connect residents who want to buy, sell, or trade bikes during Green Week, a new idea management will be allowing us to try this year. Here’s how it will work.
Before April 22, email me at ParkTowerBikeSwap@gmail.com. Tell me your your bike room space number and whether you want to buy, sell or trade. Then first thing Saturday morning, April 22, I’ll label all those bikes in the bike room, and between 9:00 and 11:00 am that day you can come down, take a look, meet other cyclists, and enjoy coffee and breakfast snacks in the bike room.
If you spot a bike you’re keen on, and the owner is on hand, you can negotiate with him/her right then and there. Or we’ll pass along your email address if the owner doesn’t happen to be around that very moment.
In the spirit of Green Week, we hope this will be a convenient way to reduce, reuse, and most importantly .. reCYCLE here at Park Tower!
