Fresh. Fun. With NewBo

Updated: Thursday, May 15 2014, 07:27 AM CDT
Every Thursday we focus on a vendor from Newbo City Market. Preston Moore, Director of Marketing and Special Events, tells us about this Saturday's "Bike Swap."

    The event runs from 9am-noon Saturday, with a casual ride to Ely and back to follow.

    People can attend for free to trade items, or they can choose to set up at a table "garage sale style" for $25, giving them plenty of room to display and sell their extra bike items. There's also a Bike Corral area, where folks can come and drop off a their bike to be sold, and then go wander around and enjoy the event themselves. (A volunteer will be there to watch over the bikes for anyone interested in selling.)

There will also be some cool local businesses selling items. Northtowne Cycling & Fitness will be set up selling a bunch of gear. Bike Rags will also be here selling their bike clothing, along with a few others.

Our unofficial ride route goes to Ely and back.

The first 500 bicyclists who come to the event will get a ride cup sponsored by Peace Tree Brewing Company. Anyone who shows up with one of those cups to NewBo City Market's bar, Odie's Bar & Grill (in Ely) or to Parlor City Pub & Eatery on Saturday will get a special price on Peace Tree drafts.
