VeloSwap started in 1989 when some bicycling enthusiasts wanted to get rid of extra bike stuff at the end of the season.

The event has grown into what is being called the world’s largest cycling and sports expo.

Thousands of people buy and sell bikes, parts, cycling gear, clothing and more at the National Western Complex.

Attendees can also take part in clinics, meet cycling celebrities and industry experts and sample new and cutting-edge products.

Event director Reese Brown says VeloSwap is a great opportunity to get deals and enjoy a cultural experience.

The 2016 VeloSwap is Oct. 22 from 9 a.m. to 4p.m.
