Saddlebag Sale

York Rally 2024 Saddlebag Sale cycle jumble

The cycle jumble at the York Rally is traditionally known as the “Saddlebag Sale”. It’s where you can sell your spare parts, donate items to help boost Rally funds, or seek out a bargain

A very limited number of tables are available, so we strongly recommend early booking.

The York Rally Saddlebag Sale is organised with the kind support of the National Clarion Cycling Club 1895.

For buyers

The sale opens at 10AM on Sunday 23rd June 2024. Entry will be free with a show programme (which is priced at £1, available at the Rally entrance, at the information centre (previously known as Rally HQ), or on the door at the Saddlebag Sale) . Also entry is free for children under 16. Otherwise, entry will cost £1.

For sellers

A table costs £10 with non-refundable advance booking. 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.

  • Please note this sale is for secondhand goods only – absolutely no new items please. New old stock is acceptable. And please note that no complete bikes are permitted in the marquee, to ensure that we can make the most of the limited space. However, an area immediately outside the marquee will be roped-off for the unsupervised sale of complete bikes, so be sure to bring a lock if you wish to use this.
  • Also, we know that a number of people would like to sell their items throughout the Rally, rather than just in the limited time of the Saddlebag Sale. Anyone wishing to sell items on an ongoing basis during the Rally is invited to contact our Trade Co-Ordinator – for 2024 outdoor trade stands are free of charge if you book any campsite pitch, or just £50 if you do not (and you can sell new items, too, if you wish). To  contact our Trade Co-Ordinator, please see here.
  • The marquee will be open for setting up your tables from 9AM. 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.
  • In 2024 all  loading/unloading will again be from the rear of the marquee: no vehicles are permitted in the central event area. Parking for unloading and loading will be clearly signed and marshalled: please do not attempt to park anywhere else.

Bring your spare kit and help raise funds for the Rally. We’ll have a table set aside for donated cycling gear, which will be sold to raise funds for the Rally.  Any sellable parts and accessories, good condition clothing and even complete bikes are very welcome.  All funds raised will go to supporting the Rally, and any items left unsold will be donated to cycling related charities or organisations wherever possible.

Please bring your donations to Rally HQ before 10AM on Sunday morning.
If you’d like to donate a complete bike, please bring it to HQ before 10AM on Saturday, so that we can enter it into the auction.
