Riverside, Whitworth team up for huge gear sale

The RO shop in Stratford Hills.

Our good friends at Riverside Outfitters and Whitworth Cycles will be holding a used gear sale on Saturday, Feb. 22nd from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Matt Perry, of RO, told me they’re trying to get rid of all their old boats and gear before the rafting season begins. Then, starting in the fall, they’ll host an annual gear sale featuring items that are either one or two years old. The idea is to sell the stuff that’s only gotten one season of use so they can keep buying new stuff. Sounds like a win/win for gear buyers and future RO customers to me.

Here’s what you can expect to see at the Feb. 22 gear-be-gone extravagaza:

3 canoes; 3-4 sit-on-top kayaks; 3-4 standup paddleboards; PFDs, paddles and helmets; a to-be-determined number of bikes and well as bike parts from Whit Brooks at Whitworth Cycles.

“It’s all gonna be sold as is,” Perry said, of his gear. “It’s all been used as recently as last season. You can expect some external body issues, dents and whatever on the canoes, some hairline cracks on the kayaks.”

He said prices will range from $100-200 for the kayaks to maybe $200-300 for the canoes and SUPs. Should be some sweet deals. Check them out on Feb. 22nd.
