If you find yourself in need of a new set of two-wheels but don’t want to spend a ton of cash on a fancy new ride that will more than likely get stolen anyways, you should definitely head to the biannual Bike Auction at UC Davis on Saturday, Oct. 10. This rain-or-shine auction will take place inside the Pavilion Parking Structure (Hutchison Drive and Dairy Road in Davis) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., or until they’re all sold. All of the bicycles will be on view from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. in case you want to get there early to scope ‘em out. More than 400 bikes of all sizes and types will be available for the highest bidder: cruisers, mountain bikes, road bikes, BMX bikes and even some kids bikes will be up for grabs. Many of them are “fixer-uppers” so you shouldn’t be afraid to get your hands a little dirty putting some work into your new baby. Or, snag one for super cheap at the auction and take it to your local cycle shop for a tune-up. It’ll still be cheaper than forking out the dough for a new one! For more information, call (530) 752-BIKE, or visit Taps.ucdavis.edu/bicycle/auctions
