Another bicycle auction is coming up to unload numerous bikes that have gone unclaimed in the Missoula area. These could be the result of somebody stealing a bike and ditching it, people moving and leaving bikes behind, or bikes that people lock up somewhere and never go back for. Whatever the case, nobody has claimed them so they go up for auction, with proceeds going to local community projects.

By the way, to avoid this happening to you, Missoulians can now register bikes here. That way, if your bike is stolen, the cops can help get it back to you. As for this auction, it's online bidding. Viewing is available Monday, June 15th from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Tuesday, June 16th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Gardner’s Auction Service, 4810 Hwy 93 South, near Fred's Appliance and The Peak gym out there, but across 93.

At 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16th, the online auction goes live. To register for the online auction or to view the items online, simply visit the Gardner’s website. You can also call Gardner's with any questions, 251-2221.
