Things we can do for you
When we started our business at the end of 2015, we were donating all of the children’s bikes to The Cridge Centre for the Family. We soon found that we were receiving far more bikes than they needed so we decided to extend our offer to people that could use a break from financial stresses through our free bike exchange program for the many fast growing youth in Victoria BC.
Our mechanics have the experience and knowledge to take care of most problems you may have, quickly and professionally. From a basic adjustment & simple lube, to a full service package. All bikes that we sell from our shop come with a 30 day service guarantee!
If you’re located south of the Malahat between Sooke and Sidney, we provide a free bicycle removal service. This includes bikes of ANY sort. They can be rusted, broken, abused, or neglected and they can even be in pieces or in a pile. We will then repair any children’s bikes and include these in our free bike exchange program others will be repaired and sold to help further fund this program.
Please give us a call if you’d like to take advantage of this service from Re-Buy-Cycle Shop!!
Well, we had the opportunity so we took the “leap of faith”. Likely the biggest “hail mary” our life. Moving into the new shop at the end of the cycling season was definitely not our original plan. We knew if we could survive through fall/winter that we would probably make it, and here we are,…
Why we do it
To be a solution for families through our free bike exchange program.
Get kids riding a bike as soon as possible.
No child should be deprived of this experience! (not every parent can afford to buy bikes for their kids)
Still not convinced? Here is another one:
To prevent ANY salvageable bikes or bike pieces from ending up in a metal grinder. Ultimately we would like to divert every bike that we can, to either be donated to third world countries or to be refurbished locally with a little elbow grease and a lot of TLC.
Reviews From Facebook
Great bike swap scheme. They we so helpful. Definitely worth a visit for kids bike.
Just picked up a free bike for Noah and they even installed a hand brake at our request for no charge! Great service, knowledgeable and such a great experience for the kids to see grown ups giving back to the community AND reusing pre-loved bikes. We will be donating our outgrown bikes and will continue to shop here in the future. Thanks!
Thank you for taking the old bikes, I know that someone will enjoy them.
Best bike shop ever! Very friendly staff and they're very honest!
Staff went out of their way to make sure our requests were accommodated! Great bikes in good condition for great prices ... We will definitely be going back!
Such an amazing business! Toddler picked out her first bike (rapunzel!) and converted it to a strider bike. Awesome service! Recommend to anyone and everyone:)
I've had the guys work on quite a few of my bikes. They are exactly what i was looking for. Friendly. Great service. Prompt. Wide selection of bikes to choose from if you need one. Give them a shout. John...�
Just traded up both of my kids bikes! Super friendly and the kids love their new bigger bikes
So glad to see a business like yours finding success by spreading happiness. My kids are stoked. Thank you.
Very friendly and helpful definately be returning
Great customer service. You can tell these guys love what they do and their goal is to see your child leave with a smile. Not pushy at all and fair prices. I highly recommend checking them out!
I was extremely impressed with the professional and dedicated service I got when I needed a new bike. These guys value the environment and their community and do it all for an extremely cheap price. When there was an issue with my bike that needed immediate fixing they went out of their way to come to my location and fix the issue on their day off. That on top of their free bikes for kids program makes these guys the ideal local business you want to support. They are friendly hard working guys who deserve your business.
Looking For Volunteers! Due to the incredibly positive response to our free children's bike exchange program, we're finding ourselves in need of some people with a bit of bicycle repairing skills to help us keep up the flow of children's bikes. If you would like to help out with a great children's program and help put a great big smile on some kids faces, please feel free to contact us.
