The Nelson Cycling Club has hosted an Annual Bike Swap for the past five years. It is the club's biggest fundraiser: essential to the club's activities and to all those Nelsonite's  looking to buy or sell biking hardware.

The swap has been organized for the last four years by a group of dedicated volunteers who are almost ready to step down but are keen to mentor new volunteers to plan and coordinate the swap.  If you are a cyclist who is keen to "get more involved in 2012" this is your opportunity.

We need two or three volunteers to learn the ropes and be committed for at least two years. 

For the NCC executive, it has been a relief knowing we don't have to look for a new group of organizers every year and could count on Doug, Helen, Darcey and Bruce to get the job done. For anyone who steps up to run the swap, feel an immediate sense of satisfaction knowing you've contributed and that we wouldn't dare pester you to swing a pulaski for a trail maintenance day or stand out in the baking sun at the Fat Tire Festival. You've pretty much contributed your time before the peak riding season has begun!  So if you want to get more involved in club activities and can contribute some time to this important event, please get in touch with the bike swap committee by emailing Doug at  The first organizational meeting is planned February 8th and the swap is scheduled for April 22nd.
