Epic Cycles has been in the business of bikes for 20 years. We love riding them, fixing them, cleaning them and looking at them. We love old worn bike parts that tell stories of long summer days in the woods and crisp fall mornings cruising around the neighborhood. We love the incomparable feeling of freedom and adventure bikes provide. Most of all we love sharing them with others. Whether it’s setting up your child on their first bike or breathing new life into your old trusty commuter, the reason we come to work each day is to help you find freedom and joy on two wheels.

WNC Outdoor Collective

110 Black Mountain Avenue

WNC Outdoor Collective’s desire is to create a place where people are paramount and where everyone is welcome around the campfire. “We are re-creating outdoor retail by putting human connection at the center of who we are and making retail a byproduct of that community,” says founder Lincoln Walters. “In short; COMMUNITY · COFFEE · BEER + GEAR. And as we continually strive to be the intersection between people and the outdoors, our vision would be that each purchase would have the power not just for good, but for change, in the places we love the most.”
