Great Maine Bike Swap

We regret to inform the members of our cycling community that in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the 2020 Great Maine Bike Swap has been canceled. The Bicycle Coalition of Maine looks forward to the Great Maine Bike Swap each year and the opportunity that it presents to get affordable bicycles in the hands of more Mainers. However, we want to prioritize health and safety and will follow the advice of public health officials regarding the cancellation of all large events. Thank you for understanding the necessity of this decision, and we look forward to resuming this celebratory event in 2021!

The Great Maine Bike Swap is a collaboration of the Bicycle Coalition of Maine and the University of Southern Maine’s Office of Sustainability. The event is hosted each April at USM’s Sullivan Recreation and Fitness Complex and offers a convenient and affordable opportunity to buy and/or sell used bicycles.

At the Swap, you can choose from hundreds of bikes that include 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. The Bicycle Coalition of Maine is committed to the Great Maine Bike Swap because it provides access to a large range of bicycles for any rider.

Each year, the Great Maine Bike Swap is made possible by local businesses that support our effort to get affordable bicycles in the hands of more Mainers as a form of transportation, recreation, and fun!
