The Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Great Maine Bike Swaps

Welcome to the Great Maine Bike Swaps!

The Great Maine Bike Swaps offer a great way to buy used bicycles at an affordable price.  You also can sell the bikes cluttering your garage or basement and turn them into cash.  Each year, the Coalition hosts bike swaps in Orono and Portland.

At the swaps, you can choose from hundreds of bikes, including hybrids, road bikes, mountain bikes, children’s bikes, recumbents and more. The inventory covers all price ranges, so you’re sure to find something that suits your budget.  And you’ll
be going “green” by getting a gently used bike rather than a new one.

If you’re planning to test ride a bike at the swap, please make sure to BYOH (Bring
Your Own Helmet) for a speedier experience.

Are You A Seller?

Register online today to save time!  We recommend using our online seller registration form to reduce your wait when dropping off your bike. If you want to sell online, please click the button to the right and fill out the seller form.  You can drop bikes off on Saturday evening (or Sunday morning as a last resort).  We also offer onsite registration for those who prefer.   Seller Forms will be posted in late January.

If you are selling more than 10 bicycles, please email swap@bikemaine.org for more information about a streamlined registration process.

We’re not taking parts this year, but if you’re interested in selling them yourself, please email info@bikemaine.org for more info about setting up a table.


Are you a Buyer?

Don’t have a bike to sell?  Not to worry, we have hundreds of bikes just waiting for you! Volunteers will help you find a bike that fits, and you’ll be able to go on a test ride.
