BOULDER, CO (BRAIN)—The ultimate bargain treasure hunt for cycling enthusiasts is headed East. VeloSwap has earned a reputation as one of the largest consumer cycling shows in the country, offering deals for cyclists in Denver for more than two decades.
On October 8 and 9, VeloSwap will debut in Providence, Rhode Island at the Roger Williams State Park as part of the Providence Cyclocross Festival.
“The entire festival is about celebrating every element of cycling. VeloSwap will add tremendous gravity to Providence,” said Richard Fries, marketing communications director for the festival. “This park, this city, this date are so perfectly situated to host a rendezvous for every East Coast cyclist.”
A true celebration of all things cycling, the event features the opportunity to buy, sell and recycle new and used bicycles and equipment. Beginner and expert cyclists can up their game with sports clinics and interactions with cycling celebrities. The 2011 VeloSwap will also showcase an expanded EcoVillage and product sampling. More than 6,000 visitors are expected to attend the two day event.
“We’ve had such tremendous support for our flagship event in Denver for 22 years and it’s remarkable to see VeloSwap’s reach grow to a new audience,” said Reese Brown, manager of VeloSwap. “It welcomes not only consumers and retailers but individuals, clubs, non-profits and manufacturers who want to participate and interact with the cycling community.”
