1st Kanata Scout Group hosts the Annual Bike Exchange each April to provide a valuable service to the community as well as raise funds to support the Scouting Program in Kanata. Families are welcome to shop for bikes of all sizes and colours. If you have an unused bike, please bring it in for a possible exchange for a new one!
- Again this year we are branching out to include canoes, kayaks and outdoor gear! In general, large items in good condition will be considered.
- $1 per item and 20% of sale price stays with 1st Kanata Scouts.
Each year we obtain extra bikes through the winter, repair and have held them in storage courtesy of Kanata Research Park.
To move all the bikes, Hertz has kindly donated transportation services with a large truck.
We expect to have over 400 bikes available to be sold this year!
