DENVER - VeloSwap - a huge cycling event where people can buy, sell or trade gear, parts or bikes starts on Saturday, Oct. 19.
VeloSwap started in 1989 by the riders at VeloNews who were looking for a way to unload their extra bike stuff at the end of the season. The idea took off in bike loving Boulder, and moved to the sprawling National Western Complex in Denver, growing into the country's largest one day consumer bike show and swap.
More than 10,000 people usually participate in the swap.
The event takes place at the National Western Complex from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets will be available for $8 at the door - cash only. Kids under 12 are free.
