How does it work?

Rothar’s Kids Bike Swap event helps to facilitate the flow of affordable bicycles within the community while simultaneously preventing fully functional bikes from ending up in local landfills. This event provides families with a cost-effective opportunity that allows them to trade a child’s bike that has been outgrown for a larger bike that provides both a better fit and ride for their child’s next summer season of riding! Families looking to buy a bike, but do not have a bike to trade in, are welcome to come after 3 pm.


Throughout the year, Rothar receives bike donations, many of which fuel the Kids Bike Swap event in the Spring. Through their full-service repair shop and staff of volunteer mechanics Rothar is able to maintain, repair and overhaul many of the bikes that come through their doors.


cyclistAt the swap, each bike that is brought along is given a credit value which can then be applied towards a “new” bike. If the chosen bike’s value exceeds that of the credit the customer is responsible for the difference. Bikes will be available at credit value, credit plus €10 and credit plus €30 which includes a month’s Rothar guarantee.


Rothar is a non-profit bike shop that reuses and recycles old bicycles reducing waste while providing a sustainable mode of transport and community based education to provide social inclusion.


This event has been organised by Rothar with support from Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council. DLRCoCo does not accept any responsibility of any nature or description arising out of any claims or disputes or breach of contract arising out of any activity concerning the Rothar-Shanganagh Bike Project.
