Another Great Maine Bike Swap is in the books.
A big thank you to everyone who helped: all the volunteers who worked so hard to create the best possible experience, our amazing sponsors – WCLZ, Noyes, Hall & Allan, Ransom Consulting, Inc., the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein, GA Gear, USM, AAA Northern New England, Arcadia, the Gorham Grind, and Leonardo’s Pizza – everyone who signed up to sell a bike, and last but certainly not least, everyone who turned out on Sunday, April 23, to buy a bike.
There’s a great take on the Swap at a blog called Utilitarian Bicycles, too.
By any metric, this year’s Swap was an enormous success! Here are some key numbers:
- Number of bicycles put up for sale: 810
- Number of bicycles sold: 627
- Average price of bicycles sold: $207
- Attendance: 1,559
- Number of volunteers: 195
Here’s the biggest number, though: $110,000. That’s roughly the amount of money Swap sellers earned from their bike sales.
See you at the next Great Maine Bike Swap!
