Checks will be mailed to sellers in the coming weeks. Thanks for your patience.
The GVBC Board wants to express our heartfelt thanks to all who participated in the swap as sellers, buyers, sponsors and volunteers. We had a record year this year! This means more bikes on the roads and trails instead of collecting dust in garages. It also means more funds for GVBC to use to support the cycling community of the Gallatin Valley.
