● The Bike Exchange and Sale event makes it easy to shop for a used bike.

Thinking of buying a used bike? If only there was a place where you could compare hundreds of used bikes under one roof. It just so happens that the 1st Kanata Scout Group may have exactly what you’re looking for.

The Kanata Scout Group will be holding its “ Annual Bike Exchange and Sale” Saturday morning from 8:30 to 11:00 am on April 27, 2019, at the Mlacak Arena ( 2500 Campeau Dr, Kanata).

The floor of the arena will be filled with hundreds of bikes for sale. Organizers of the event say that the prices for these bicycles generally range from $5 to $300, and are typically a third of the retail store prices. They usually sell over 400 bikes. There’s often a line up to get in, so it’s best to come early for good selection. (Cash sales or cheque with ID).

It’s also possible to sell your bike at this event. It cost $1 to put your bike on the floor, and if it sells, the Scout Group keeps a 20% commission. If you want to sell a bike, you’ll have to drop it off at the rear-corner of the arena between 7:00-9:00 pm on Friday, April 26, or between 7:30 – 8:30 am before the sale starts on Saturday.

In addition to providing a service to the greater Ottawa community this event is a fund raiser for the scouting program in Kanata. If you want to help out the Kanata Scout Group, you can also donate a bike by bringing it to the same place and during the same time for drop offs of bikes that people want to sell.
