VeloSwap, National Western Complex, Saturday, 03. November 2018


VeloSwap is an annual event with 10,000+ attendees and 600+ vendors at the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado. Every year attendees snap up deals from hundreds of vendors selling bikes, parts, clothing and accessories.
VeloSwap was started in 1989 by VeloNews art director Dan Wildhirt because he and his friends needed to get rid of extra bike equipment at the end of the season. That inaugural event was held outdoors at a Boulder cyclo-cross race. Over the next few years the swap outgrew all possible venues in Boulder and so it moved to nearby Denver where it found a home at the sprawling National Western Complex, famous for rodeos and stock shows. VeloSwap developed into the world’s largest single-day consumer bike expo and swap, taking up more than 140,000 square feet.
The show quickly became known as the place to find great deals and a hotspot for collectors. Bike shops from all over the US use the season-ending event to flush-out inventory that they don’t want to carry into the winter season. Because those first in line found the best deals, attendees began lining up before dawn just to get into the event first, which opens at 9 am.
