Unless you are one of those poor souls on the road in a face mask trekking to work each day, riding your bike is probably the furthest thing on your mind. However, like buying a winter coat at the end of spring, it's never a bad idea to be prepared for the upcoming season. This Sunday the Blaine National Sports Center will host the enormously popular Twin Cities Bike Swap, an event that last year drew over 600 shoppers. Now with additional space, the event features deals on bikes (from mountain to vintage to road, and even bikes for velodrome racing), gear, and other supplies. Looking to sell your bike? Bring it to the bike corral and see if any riders bite. For more info visit twincitiesbikeswap.com or call 763.785.5614.
