2020 DC Bike Swap & Expo

April 28, 2020 
Due to COVID-19 concerns, we regretfully have decided to cancel the 2020 DC Bike Swap scheduled for May 17th. As a bike community tradition for the past 5 years, the Bike Swap will be back either this fall next year. To all our vendors and yearly attendees, we are so appreciative of your continued participation in and enthusiasm for the Bike Swap!


Don’t miss the 6th Annual DC Bike Swap and Expo hosted by Gearin’ Up Bicycles. If you missed last year, you missed the District’s one and only bike swap.  It was a huge success with bike lovers, enthusiasts, artists, advocates, collectors, racers, and first time riders all rubbing shoulders and handlebars.  We will once again gather at Dock 5 @ Union Market to celebrate cycling, swap bikes, buy great new and used bikes and accessories, and have a great time!  This year we are returning to Dock 5 on Sunday, May 17th, 2020 to keep everyone moving forward on 2 or 3 or 4 wheels!

The DC Bike Swap & Expo is a place for shops and individuals to sell your old parts and bikes or take advantage of unbelievable deals on all things bike related that you need for a season of riding. Buy, sell, hang out, shop, trade with industry reps, advocates, individual vendors, bike shops, manufacturers and like-minded cyclists!!

General admission is a suggested $5.00 donation to Gearin’ Up Bicycles, Washington DC’s only community refurbished bicycle shop, and supports our youth workforce development program.  Whether you’re looking for road bikes, mountain bikes, triathlon bikes, BMX bikes, clothing, bike parts, cycling accessories, vintage, new or used, there’s something for everyone… all for sale!  We will offer bicycles from private vendors and collectors, as well as shops from across the DMV.  We will also have local artists, advocacy groups, a test ride area, and mechanics on hand for all of your needs.
