PORTLAND — Maine bicycling enthusiasts are gearing up for the riding season ahead with a bike swap in Portland.
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Great Maine Bike Swap is being held at the University of Southern Maine’s Sullivan Gym from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
Hundreds of people attend the event each year to seek out used bicycles at affordable prices or to sell bikes they no longer need. The coalition held another bike swap in Orono earlier this month.
Admission to Sunday’s event is $3, but it’s free for students at USM, the University of Maine, the University of New England and Southern Maine Community College, as well as children 12 or younger. Last year’s swap attracted more than 1,600 people.
