Bike Recycling in high gear

Thanks to a crack team of dedicated volunteers, our Bike Recycling Program is churning out bicycles for social services at a breakneck pace.

To keep us moving along & helping our neighbors, we could use the following donations:
  • Cash, for our shop rent and safety accessories (each distributed bike is equipped with a new helmet, lock, and light set, which we purchase wholesale). Donate online!
  • Bikes! All styles and conditions accepted! If we can't refurbish the bike, we'll strip it of useful parts and recycle the rest.
  • Shop supplies: paper towels, rags, Tri-flow, WD-40, sharpies, and zip ties always needed!
  • Fans: the shop is not air conditioned, so it's getting mighty toasty in there. A couple more fans would be most welcome.
  • Bottled water: see above
  • Time: come volunteer with us!
To see the shop in action, check out this slideshow of yesterday's session:
