Bicycle & Hardware Donations


When and Where?

We greatly appreciate bike and hardware donations at regular open shop and retail hours. Our most up-to-date hours are located on the side-hand side of the website.

We use bike donations in several ways:
1. Repair for retail sales
2. Repair for our bicycle programs
3. Strip for parts to use and sell/give volunteers experience working on these bikes
4. Sell as-is to customers to fix on their own during Open Shop
5. Repair for use in our Learn to Ride classes

We suggest a $10 donation accompanying each bike donation to cover the cost of any repairs or replacement parts it may need.

If your bike donation is more than 5 bikes or you would like to donate outside of these donation hours, please email Andrew at [email protected] to schedule an appointment.
