Saddlebag sale

York Rally Saddlebag Sale cycle jumble

50 tables are available! First come, first served.

The traditional Saddlebag Sale (cycle jumble) will be back at the revived York Rally in 2018. Sell your spare parts, seek out a bargain, or just browse!

We will confirm details of the 2018 sale shortly.

Some scenes from recent sales:

For visitors

The sale opens at 11AM on Sunday 24th June 2018. Entry will be free with a show programme (which will be priced at £1) . Otherwise, entry will cost £1.

For sellers

The marquee will be open for setting up your tables from 10AM. When you arrive on site, please mention to the marshalls on the entrance that you are a Saddlebag Sale/cycle jumble seller and you will be directed up to park near the marquee where the sale takes place. Please go dead slow on the Rally site.

There are just 50 tables available, and these are being allocated on a first come, first served basis. A table costs £10: this just about covers our costs for hiring the tables, with anything over going towards the cost of hiring the marquee: every part of the Rally has to pay its way. Any additional donation when you book a table is most welcome, and we also invite sellers to become Friends of York Rally if you are not already a member.

Online and postal bookings are now closed! Assuming there are still tables left, you can also book one at the Rally itself – please just enquire at Rally HQ.

And finally:

Please note this sale is for secondhand goods only – absolutely no traders with new items please.

Also, we know that a number of people would like to sell their items throughout the Rally, rather than just in the limited time (and crowds!) of the Saddlebag Sale.  To comply with trading rules (from City of York Council) anyone wishing to sell items on an ongoing basis during the Rally is invited to contact our Trade Co-Ordinator – for small traders a pitch in the trade show area will not be expensive (and you can sell new items, too, if you wish). To  contact our Trade Co-Ordinator Charlie Hodge, please see here.


For anyone who has reached this page directly, note that this sale is part of a grand cycling weekend, the York Rally, now organised by an independent committee of volunteers. It’s held on the Knavesmire in York (satnav to YO23 1EX, see also How to reach the Rally)  and entry to the Rally is free.

If you have any queries about the saddlebag sale, please just email us on: You are also welcome to call on 01482 843286 (preferably between 7 and 8 PM,  Sunday to Thursday). If there is no reply please speak very clearly and leave a number for us to call you back. If you do not hear back within a week please call again – the message will not have got through.
