BIKE SWAP

What can I sell at the Bike Swap?
Mountain bikes

Do I need to pre-register?
No, show up, check-in at the registration table and display your bike.  Bring a lock!

HOW DOES THE BIKE SWAP WORK?
We will have a designated area for you to display your bike, free with paid park admission. It is important to note that we don’t actually sell your bike. The bike corral just provides a place to display your bike and your contact information and the details about your bike.  You sell direct.

It’s an area for bikes that people want to sell. The area will be monitored but SkyPark is not responsible for your bike, please bring a lock. This allows you to show your bike without being present. The Bike Corral registration form will include the details about your bike and your contact information, so potential buyers can talk to you. It is important to note that we don’t actually sell your bike. All bikes not picked up at the end of the day will be donated to our So Cal High School Cycling League or a non-profit charity.

WHIP OFF CONTEST PRESENTED BY SPANK
Style and skill will reign supreme at SkyPark’s first official Whip Off Contest presented by Spank and DVO Suspension. A new jump is being built for this special event!  The rules to win are simple: go big, and throw your bike as sideways as possible, then bring it back underneath for a smooth landing.
