Whether your family prefers dirt or pavement, now is the time to get your wheels ready for spring and summer riding. Bike swaps offer an economical way to upgrade your ever-growing kids' cycles. Bring in last year's bikes — in good condition —  for consignment prior to the sale, then shop for new-to-you items on swap days. Be sure to check each store's websites for trade-in specifics and take this insider's tip: Arrive early for the best selection. Happy cycling!
