RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - Hay Camp Brewing Company held their first ever bike swap Sunday and within the first fifteen minutes, their back room was packed with bike enthusiast.

You could buy, sell, or trade anything bike related.

The Hay Camp employees got the idea from other bike swaps like the one they went to in Colorado.

There was anything from tires, handlebars, and even full bikes for sale.

Bike shops and bike riders with extra stuff just laying around were able to set up at a table for a fee, but all the proceeds benefited an organization.

Hay Camp Brewing Company tavern manager, Ben Peck, says “We’re just doing this as kind of a fundraiser for Black Hills Mountain Bike Association. We’re also encouraging people that has leftover parts that they don't need or they don't sell today to donate it to Thrive, which is a non-profit store.”

They will start up their bike for pints starting in May which will be a weekly event starting on Saturday at 6 in the afternoon.
