By capping the amount, anything sold for more than $1,500 will be charged a flat-rate so it’s a very competitive way to sell your bike and makes for better deals to the buyers. All the while, as the event grows, it becomes a more meaningful fundraiser for the Bend Endurance Academy’s programs!

Our History:

Created by Ryan McGlone from Boneyard Cycling, the Bend Bike Swap began as a way to give back to the local community.  Ryan brought together volunteers from the Boneyard Team, local bike shops and the cycling community for three days of bikes, bike gear, and cycling enthusiasm.  Although the location of the Bend Bike Swap has changed throughout the past five years, originally hosted by Matt Massingale at Cascade Rack, proceeds from the event were always donated to the Bend Endurance Academy, Commute Options, and Mountain Bachelor Sports Education Foundation.   

In 2019, the Bend Bike Swap will be organized by the Bend Endurance Academy and hosted by Thump Coffee in Northwest Crossing. The Bend Endurance Academy will continue the tradition of offering an assortment of gear for mountain biking, road cycling, cyclocross while making customer service a high priority.
