Kansas City Swapmeet and Alleykat Race May 17th

On Saturday, May 17th, the Greater Kansas City Bicycle Federation is hosting the All Things Bicycle Jumble and Swapmeet, followed by Tour de Cowtown, described as “Kansas City’s longest running annual alleykat races”.

The swapmeet takes place in the parking lot of Acme Bicycle Company at 412 East 18th Street in Kansas City, Missouri (see map). The swapmeet is free for both buyers and sellers, though everyone is asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the food bank, as well as any bicycles or gear you’d like to donate to the Greater Kansas City Bicycle Federation’s free bike program and the 816 Bicycle Collective.

The “834th annual” Tour de Cowtown alleykat race takes place that evening at 7pm, again starting at Acme Bicycle. The entry fee is $12 the day of the race (or $10 if you pre-register). Food, drink, and music will be provided, and participants will be racing for fun, prizes, and prestige.

If you need more information, please call 816-221 2045.
