1st Kanata Scout Group - Bike Exchange and Sale 2023

Thanks for Bike Exchange and Sale 2022

A big "Round of Applause" to everyone who made the 1st Kanata Scout Group - Bike Exchange and Sale a success. Especially the volunteers, the people who donated bikes and the buyers/sellers. Without you, there would not be a sale let alone a successful one. Hope to see everyone next year.

Each year 1st Kanata Scout Group hosts an Annual Bike Exchange and Sale, selling hundreds of bikes, as a service to the greater Ottawa community and to raise funds to support the Scouting programs in 1st Kanata Scout Group.

Want to Buy a Bike? The floor is open from 8:30 to 11:00 am Sat 22 Apr 2023 at the Mlacak Arena (2500 Campeau Dr, Kanata). The lineup starts early. Cash or cheque with ID only. Bike prices range from $10 to $300, typically 33% of the retail store price.

Want to Sell a Bike? Bike drop-off is from 6-8 pm Fri 21 Apr 2023 or 7 to 8:30 am Sat 22 Apr 2023 at the Mlacak Arena (2500 Campeau Dr, Kanata). $1 fee per item for putting it in the sale. Sellers set a fixed price. If an item sells, 1st Kanata keeps a 20% commission, sellers collect their 80% of the price (and any unsold items) between 11:15-11:45 am Sat 22 Apr. Unsold items not collected are treated as donations. Clean, working bikes in good condition have the best chance of selling. Helmets cannot be sold.

Want to Donate a Bike? Email Bikes@1stkanatascouts.org or bring the donation to the Bike Exchange and Sale. Donations will be repaired and sold to raise funds to support the Scouting programs in 1st Kanata Scout Group.
