This Saturday will be a good one, we have two great events happening in and around downtown Missoula. The Trail Head and Missoula Bicycle Works are teaming up for another Bike and Boat Swap. Need to make space, upgrade, or switch sports? You can do all of the above. Similar to the SOS swap we provide a fun twist. As a consumer we double your optins by offering you the choice of bike or boats (or both.) This year the swap will be held next to the Trail Head in the new parking structure so no matter what kind of weather yor gear and shopping is guaranteed to be dry.

If you want to sell your bike or boat, bring it in Saturday between 8AM and noon, set your price, pick your pay-out, and let us do the selling (better than Craigslist don’t you think?) Your pay-out options are; take 80% in cash or 110% in store credit. The cool part of this is if you are looking to change gears (no pun intended) you can sell a boat and take credit at the bike shop, and vice versa, your choice.

If you are looking for some great used gear come by between noon and 4PM. Our staff can give you help figuring out what is best for you.

Also happening downtown this Saturday is the  Clark Fork Coalition’s 10th annual River Cleanup. The annual Clark Fork River Cleanup is one of Missoula’s most popular volunteer events, and they expect the 10th anniversary to be the best year yet. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience that attracts a wide diversity of folks to the banks of the river each year to do their part for clean water.

It’s easy for you, your group, or your business to get involved. Email to sign up as a volunteer or team, sign up as a sponsor, and take advantage of high-impact photo opportunities at the event to showcase your support for clean water.

Last year, close to 1,000 participants collected nearly 10,000 lbs. of trash, and send nearly 1,000 lbs. of metal, aluminum, plastics, cardboard, tin, and paper to the recycling bin. Help them do even more in 2013 by joining them on Saturday, April 20. The cleanup is not only good for the river– it’s a fun and meaningful experience for you and your family, too.
