Winter Bike Swap

Saturday, Pulaski Park Fieldhouse will be filled with booths hosted by local bike shops and private sellers looking to unload extra gear at steep discounts. Local cycling organizations will also be on hand to give demonstrations on winter bike commuting and family cycling, and host various activities throughout the day.

The bike swap runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1419 W. Blackhawk Street. Admission is $5 for Active Transportation Alliance members, $10 for non-members. Kids under the age of 12 can enter for free. The event also benefits Chicago Bike Winter and The Chainlink. For more information on the swap's vendors, additional scheduled activities or how to sell a bike of your own at the swap, visit

The video above is a tour of last year's bike swap.
