For the first time, the Wisconsin Bike Fed will co-host a Bike Swap in La Crosse in partnership with Logan Bike Works, and after-school bike program for students. If you have old bikes, parts, accessories or cycling clothing gathering dust in your basement, why not bring them to the 1st Annual La Crosse Bike Swap and turn them into cash. If you are looking for anything, this is your chance to pick it up at pennies on the dollar.
For years people in La Crosse had to drive to the Twin Cities, Madison or Milwaukee to experience a bike swap. We feel the Driftless Region has enough of a cycling culture to support our own swap meet, and we couldn’t have a better partner than the kids at Logan Bike Works, an after-school program where middle school students can learn bicycle maintenance skills and bicycle safety and earn a bicycle.February 23rd 10 am -2 pm

Poster: LaCrosse FedFest 2012
The Wisconsin Bike Fed is hosting five Fed Fests across the state this fall as a chance to ride, enjoy some food and beverages and celebrate what we love about bicycling in our state. Join us in Appleton, Eau Claire, La Crosse, Madison, or Milwaukee. The Bike Fed inspires, motivates, and unites a strong and diverse community to move bicycling forward in Wisconsin. We couldn’t be happier to team up with our bicycling friends around the state to celebrate biking at Fed Fest!
Bicycle leaders from the community will lead a series of rides for every ability and rally back at the Bodega for refreshments and good cheer. The ride end/party will include beer, door prizes, and conversation. New Belgium will be on special and food will be available for purchase.
