Southold Town’s third annual Bike Swap event scheduled

bike swap

North Fork children looking for a new bike will get a chance to trade up next month during the town’s annual Bike Swap and Bike Safety event.

The annual event — now in its third year and sponsored by the Southold Town Youth Bureau — features a “bike rodeo course” set up by the Southold Town Police Department.

A technician from Country Time Cycle of Mattituck will be on hand to check bikes for safety.

Residents will also get a chance to either swap their bike for a bigger model or donate an unwanted one to the Community Action Southold Town, a local nonprofit group that helps those in need.

The event is Saturday, May 21, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Southold Recreation Center.
