KPD’s Annual Bike Sale Needed to Clear Storage Facility Inventory | KNIA KRLS Radio
Recently the Knoxville Police Department announced the upcoming date for their annual abandoned bike sale. This year’s sale will take place on Saturday, July 18th at 9 a.m. Knoxville Police Chief Aaron Fuller tells KNIA/KRLS News his department holds the annual sale each year because each year his department collects close to 100 abandoned bikes throughout town.

He says there will be social distancing guidelines when participants arrive at the sale including having the bikes spaced appropriately. The department requests that attendees wear masks or abide by social distancing guidelines to help keep everyone safe during the sale.
