Vendors include cycling industry companies, bike shops, events and individuals. Scores of used bikes of all types will be on hand as well

Stop, Swap and Save

With Sunday looking to be a bit of a wash out for much of the region, how about spending some time preparing for the meat of the season in a different way?

This Sunday the 21st Stop, Swap and Save will attract about 4000 people from across the Mid-Atlantic region to the Carroll County Agricultural Center in Westminster, MD.

Stop, Swap and Save

Where’s Westminster, you say? It’s about two hours from Philadelphia, three and a half hours from New York City, three hours from Richmond heading south and a good four hours from Pittsburgh. It’s a bit west and south of Lancaster, PA, and slightly north and west of Baltimore, MD.

The day starts at 9am and ends at 2pm, with a low $5 entry fee. It’s billed as the ‘East Coast’s largest indoor bicycle swap meet and consumer bike expo,’ and it will attract a mix of vendors including cycling industry companies, bike shops, events/rides and individuals. Scores of used bikes of all types will be on hand as well in a great big used bike corral that typically has everything from kids bikes to the latest and greatest race machines. It typically attracts a bit of the vintage community as well. For more information check out
