This page lists any Bike Swaps in the area. Some people would like to know about any Bike Swaps on the West Coast but we should probably keep it to within a day's drive of Davis, but if you know of one, just list it here anyway so we can get a good list going. It's very very easy to miss these, usually because advertising for the events is poor. If you have information on related events, such as bike shows, swaps, expos, races, rides, or any other bicycle events, please put them on this page.

Local Bike Swaps & Events
Davis Bike Swap/Foxy's Fall Century & Bike Swap There is usually very little notice before this swap unless you are part of the bike club, so it's usually very small. This fall it coincided with Foxy's Fall Century ride. If someone could provide more information about this, it would be much appriciated.
