The annual Great Maine Bike Swap will be held on Sunday, April 12 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the UMaine New Balance Recreation Center, 22 Hilltop Road, Orono.

The Swap has become the unofficial kick-off to the Maine cycling season.

The inventory covers all price ranges, so you’re sure to find something that suits your budget.
