Bicycle Donations

Donate Your Used Bicycle

Donations of used bikes in good condition are taken on Saturdays only through the winter. If you are unable to donate on a Saturday, please contact us in advance to schedule a drop-off.

  • We ask for a $5 cash donation with each bike to help defray our costs of repairs.
  • We do not buy or trade bicycles
  • We do not accept all bikes. Some bikes are too rusty or broken to fix.  We may advise you to take it to the dump instead – they can recycle your bike, tires and all.

We fix donated bikes and sell them to keep the shop running or pass them on to people in need. When you get a new bike, donate your old one to Sharing Wheels!

A donation of $5 is requested with every bike

Cash donations help pay for the new parts and time we’ll put into making it safe and ready for its next owner.

We do not buy or trade bicycles

We don’t want to end up with stolen bikes. Enough said.

We do not accept all bikes

We accept children’s and adult bicycles that are in good condition. Flat tires or minor repairs on a bike that is otherwise in good shape are not a problem. But …

Some bikes are too rusty or broken to fix.  Some bikes are so cheaply made, they just aren’t worth repairing. We may advise you to take it to the dump instead – they can recycle your bike, tires and all.

Kids bike donations

We need children’s bikes each fall and spring as we prepare for Christmas House and the Kids Bike Swap. Bikes with 20 and 24-inch size wheels are especially needed. Bikes must be in good condition – flat tires we can fix, but broken frames or rusty wheels are just not worth it.
