Trek Bicycle Store of Fairfield

Just in time for fall riding weather, the shop is hosting a bike swap:

"Start planning now because our used bike swap is coming the weekend of September 15-16.

We'll look over your bike and let you know what we think the bike is worth. We will also make recommendations on any repairs that may be needed. We will give you a recommended price. You will bring the bike back for the sale between the 12th and the 14th to sign authorization form for the sale of the bike and we will give it a quick shine and a tag. We will third party sell the bike "as is" to the public. If the bike sells we take a 15% consignment fee for selling the bike and the rest can be used towards the purchase of a new bike."

Ms. Mazzola, Surely in 2012 there is a better way to report the school sports listings than: Boys, Girls & Ladies Of course the boys teams existed first but the opposite of ladies is gentlemen. Let's level the playing field as it were, with a different choice of wording for future school sports listings. Perhaps keep the boys and girls but list by Middle School or High School.

R.E. -- That listing is actually from the Fairfield, Conn. Sports Facebook page, not me. You can visit the page here and leave your suggestion: https://www.facebook.com/SportsFairfield
