WOW. WHAT A DAY!! Thanks to everyone that made our 2009 Westminster, MD SWAP our biggest and best event ever! Over 3500 fellow cyclists gathered for the mid-Atlantic's largest indoor bicycle swap and consumer expo series (click here for event reports)! If you didn't make it to our Westminster, MD SWAP (or even if you did) don't miss our new Chesterfield, VA SWAP on March 1st, 2009! Click here for complete event info. Vendor spaces are filling up fast so don't delay, register today!

The STOP, SWAP AND SAVE is the place to sell your old parts and bikes or take advantage of unbelievable deals on everything you need for a great season of cycling. Buy, sell, browse, shop, trade or just hang out with industry reps, individual vendors, bike shops, manufacturers and like-minded cyclists!

Admission is still only $5 and includes thousands of square feet (yes, it's all indoor and heated) of everything that cycling has to offer. Whether you're looking for road, mountain, triathlon, BMX, vintage, new or used, there's something for everyone!


First and foremost, thank you for your support of our upcoming event in Washington, PA. It is through support of our vendors and consumers that the SWAP has grown and prospered over the years and we sincerely appreciate it.

Despite our intensive efforts over the past several months however, including additional local advertising, hiring of a local PA rep and repeated contact with local shops and bike clubs, vendor registration for our Washington, PA SWAP has not reached a level that we feel will allow us to stage the type of high quality event that we strive to promote and that our reputation is built upon.

As a result we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Washington, PA SWAP for 2009.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this decision may cause our vendors. However, we sincerely feel that it is in the best interest of our business, our vendors and our consumers.
