Swaptacular!

Before the doors opened..


WBA with artistic bike rack information and Cafe de Arts coffee.


Busy all day!


Waukesha's Scott Stoll, who's bicycled around the world!


You could find just about any part you were looking for.


Bikes for all ages & sizes.



The first annual Waukesha Bike Swap was a hit! As all the vendors spots sold out this past week, we still had no clue what kind of reception it would have. If you've been to other swap meets, there's the initial opening rush, then after an hour or two things die down and most vendors are packed up by noon. We had a moderate line at the 9am opening and then people continued to stream through all day. Most vendors stayed right up to 2:00 when we had to shut down so everyone seemed to have a great time. Huge thanks to Todd Reynolds of Cyclesmith for organinzing this event, all the WBA volunteers for helping out, and Cafe de Arts for supplying the coffee! Proceeds from the event will be put towards the artistic bike racks and Waukesha Bike Week in May.
