Tyke Bikes

By Rebecca Martin

On the outskirts of the city of Kingston, NY. there is a bike shop that is wonderfully old school.

Last fall, Larry and I went looking for our sons very first bike. Lucky for me,  I came across the “Famous Bike Brothers” out on Boices Lane.  In business since 1974, their small shop was filled with a great selection of bikes, helmets and gloves. The service was outstanding, too.

But what’s more – and why I’m sharing this with you today – is that they have a special program for children up to the age of 7 years old.  Bike Brothers is sensitive to the speed in which our children grow. When you purchase a bike for your young child with them, they will take it back when the time comes and apply it to the purchase of the next size up.

The used bikes are refurbished and generally raffled off at the Tour de Kingston event.

Happy riding!
