Bay Area Bike Swap: All Things Bicycle


We visit the Bay Area Bike Swap Festival, which took place at Heather Farm Park in Walnut Creek on May 6. You'll be impressed with the bicycle activity boiling away in the area. Listen to the interviews - and check out the links, photos, and videos below!


For a great field trip, ferry and bike over to the Marin Museum of Bicycling in Fairfax


The Bike Swap was sponsored by yd. Bay Area Bike Project.


Bike shops in attendance:


Obstacle course: Picassos at Play Bike Art












Mika's Quest for the Lost Artifact, by Cat Fan

(set in San Francisco)




Jump ramp, sponsored by STF Mobile Bike Shop










I had to throw in this photo of a kid upside

down in the air. (The quality of the photos suffered because Christy wasn't with me.)




East Bay Regional Parks was in attendance, though I didn't record a conversation with them.













Children's obstacle course, sponsored by

Wheel Kids Bicycle Club





There were dozens of bikes for sale in the bike corral - and they looked terrific! (Sorry, no photo)
