As an avid cyclist, you're acutely aware of all the money-saving you're enjoying, what with the car-insurance-free lifestyle and your lack of visits to ye olde gas station. There's only one thing better than saving the amount of cash you're socking away now -- keeping even more scratch in your pockets (or bike shorts?). That's where Trailnet's 2014 Midwest Bicycle Expo and Swap Meet
comes in. At this day-long event, held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Gateway Center (1 Gateway Drive, Collinsville, Illinois), you can search for deals on last year's rides, sell your no-longer-needed gear and swap for items you really want. Plus, there will be fashion shows, stuff for the kiddos, tire and tube recycling, and much more. Admission costs just $5, and check out www.trailnet.org
for more about the expo and how to arrive in style on two wheels.
