Downshift, check your surroundings, and hit the brakes! Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 7th—it’s time for our 5th annual Cyclist Sale! The sale will be at two locations this year: Goodwill’s flagship store in Seattle and the Ravenna store.

Every year bikes and cycling gear are donated to Seattle Goodwill. This year—we have a HUGE amount of inventory that includes nearly every type of bike that you can imagine! From unicycles to tricycles—and a handful of wagons—and in sizes ranging from appropriate for toddlers to tall adults—the selection this year has something for everyone.

If you’re a serious cyclist, we’ve got some serious bikes and gear. From high-end fully assembled bikes to frames, rims, and bikes that have excellent components for rebuilds—this sale is going to be a haven for the price-conscious and eco-friendly hardcore cyclists out there. If you’re also looking for jerseys and attire that won’t break the bank—we’ll have some of that, too. Protip: If you’re looking for the higher end gear, get in early. Doors open at 9am.

If you are more of a weekend cyclist—we’ve also got the goods for you. Whether you just want to test out whether this bike commuting thing is for you—or you’re looking to make a leisurely loop around Green Lake, we have hundreds of bikes just waiting for a new home! There’s a wide selection of brands & styles ranging from cruisers to mountain bikes and everything in between at a price point that’s right for you.

This year, our biggest selection will be found in the children’s bike section—many of them are in like-new condition. The selection includes brands like Trek, Novara, Huffy, and a handful of Disney Princess bikes (tassels, training wheels and all!) Kids grow out of bikes just as fast as they grow out of shoes and pants—and keeping up with their frame size needs can be difficult and costly! If it’s time for your kiddo’s first bike—or next bike—our Cyclist Sale will have the perfect bike for your little one.

As we get closer to the sale, keep an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter to keep updated with previews and a giveaway from the generous folks over at Timbuk2 Seattle! Join our Facebook event to get all the event-related info and photos as we release it!

Looking forward to checking out the gear... but I so wish you had this sale before Bike to School and Bike to Work Month! Both my son and I needed new (to us) bikes but bought them elsewhere so we could ride to work and school in May. I'm betting we weren't the only ones.

Oh no, Rain City Kitty! We do the Cyclist Sale at the same time each year--but we'll definitely bring that up when we discuss the sale next time!
