Bicycle event wheels into Brentwood

March 5, 2013 by  

Brentwood is the place to be for bicycle enthusiasts this month.

The free Bicycle Swap Meet will be held later this month at Brentwood Bike Company, which is hosting the event.

Spaces are free but vendors need to RSVP to (925) 634-5000 to reserve a space, as people who show up the day of the event will not be allowed to participate. The meet is open to anyone who has bicycle items in need of a new home, and vendors may want to bring digital business cards along in search of future custom.

Shoppers will have the opportunity to find a “new to them” bicycle or accessory at a great price. The store will be discounting items that are scratched, dented, or old merchandise.

There are a variety of different bikes to choose from for different riding styles: Road bikes are designed for fast speed and paved roads, while mountain bikes are not quite as fast but are more durable and offer a more comfortable sitting position. Comfort bikes, meanwhile, are good for general biking and can be used on a variety of road surfaces, combining the best of road bikes and mountain bikes.

As well as the wheels, wine tasting will be available to those over the age of 21 the day of the event. The bike company is located at 7740 Brentwood Boulevard, Suite B, Brentwood.

The event be slamming its brakes on in Brentwood from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm on Saturday, March 16.
