Kids' Buy Back Program

Kids Grow Fast. We’re Here to Help.

Kids grow fast. Sycamore Cycles has come up with a great way to deal with this growing pain. Our Kids’ Bike Buy Back Program works like this: buy a bike from our store. When your child has outgrown his or her bike, return the bike to the store and you’ll receive up to 50% of the original purchase price toward a new bike (26" wheel or smaller). The used bikes will be refurbished and donated to Adventure Kids WNC, a non profit organization that provides mountain bike outings and environmental education to youth who would not otherwise have the opportunity to do so. They serve kids in Transylvania, Henderson and Buncombe counties.

How Does Trading Up Work?

Our Kids' Buy Back Program is simple - invest in a quality bike today, and bring it back to us when your child is ready for the next size. We’ll inspect the bike and give you up to 50% of the original price to spend on a new kids’ bike. This program is valid until your child is ready for an adult bike! The used bikes will be refurbished and donated to Adventure Kids WNC.

NICA & BYCA

The National Interscholastic Cycling Association, NICA, is a non-profit organization that has one job: to get kids stoked about riding bikes. Local communities across the country are starting their own chapters: with parents, teachers, and business owners banding together to start their own chapters to coach these youth cyclists. NICA focuses on building on-the-bike skills through weekly practices, and team building through group rides. NICA's mission statement: "We build strong minds, bodies, character, and communities through cycling."

BYCA is the Brevard Youth Cycling Association which was established as a starting point for kids in 4th and 5th grade before moving up to NICA. Sycamore Cycles is proud to sponsor the local NICA chapter, the "Ridgeline Renegades."
