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.

Swap-Seller-PortlandWe offer online seller registration as well as onsite.  If you want to sell online, please fill out the seller form (this will be posted in early 2014).  If you want to register onsite, you can drop bikes off on Saturday evening (or Sunday morning as a last resort).

If you are selling more than 10 bicycles, please email 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 for more info about setting up a table.
