Buy a Bike on Saturday, Get a FREE Helmet

14 Sep

If you’re in the market for a good used bike, this Saturday afternoon September 17 from 12-3 is a great time to get one because the Greater Mercer TMA will give you a FREE helmet. That’s right, free. If you come by the Trenton Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange between 12 and 3, GMTMA will be there distributing bicycle safety information and giving away free bike helmets and reflective straps to anyone who purchases a bike!

The Trenton Bike Exchange has a large selection of good quality, low cost used bikes for all bicyclists of any age, from occasional weekend rider to serious road rider.  All bikes are reconditioned and are ready to ride.  You can ride the bike before you purchase.

The Trenton Exchange is located in the Capitol Plaza Shopping Center at 1500 N. Olden Avenue in Ewing, NJ, (near Lawrenceville and Trenton). The Exchange is 8 miles from Princeton and easily accessable by NJ Transit bus number 606.

The Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange is an all volunteer effort that collects, condtions and sells used bikes from its shops in Newark and Trenton. The mission of the Bike Exchange is to provide a source of low cost quality bikes for families and individuals in Mercer County and Newark. The Exchange also accepts donated bikes which are reconditioned and sold by volunteers. For more info on the Bike Exchange, visit their website: http://www.bikeexchangenj.org/.

There’s no time like the present to get a great new used bike, and if you do it on Saturday from 12-3, you’ll get a free helmet too.

Hope to see you Saturday!
