1st Kanata Scout Group

Annual Bike Exchange & Sale

100's of bikes bought and sold every year!

1st Kanata Scout Group hosts the Annual Bike Exchange and Sale each April to provide a valuable service to the greater Ottawa community as well as raise funds to support the Scouting Program in Kanata. Each year, over 400 bikes are sold. This year, we would like to sell even more - to do that we need you to bring in your old bikes! You can donate bikes throughout the year, or bring in a bike to sell or donate at the event. Despite the name 'Exchange and Sale', you can sell or buy or do both.

The Bike Exchange is for accessories too; e.g. if you have training wheels, or trailers in good condition, bring those too. Sorry, we will not accept helmets.

Thanks to everyone who supported us in 2019.

See you again in April 2020.
