Cirque du Cycle!

At the St. Louis Regional Bicycle Federation's annual Bicycle Swap Meet & Classic Bike Show (314-707-5001 or www.stlbikefed.org), there's going to be some clowning around — courtesy of the talented St. Louis Arches youth circus troupe, whose members perform (on bicycles, of course!) at 1 p.m. Even though you may not be able to execute acrobatic feats, you can get in on the bike-show action: Bikes and their accoutrements are for sale, and you can participate in the raffle for a reproduction Schwinn Sting-Ray. Plus, for those who are "just looking," the shiny vintage models on display should dazzle. The swap meet runs from noon to 3:30 p.m. today at the Gateway Center (1 Gateway Drive, Collinsville, Illinois); admission is $5.50 (early birds pay $10.50 for their 10:30 a.m. entry).
