Frequently Asked Questions:

What sizes of bikes are in highest demand?

Adult men's bikes, medium size are the highest demand, but we will take bikes of any size, age and condition. Unrepairable bikes are salvaged for parts.

Do you accept bike helmets?

Helmets have an expiration date, so we will only accept new helmets.

Is there an amazon wishlist to purchase items to donate?

No. Cash donations are welcome. We have an account with a wholesaler so we can purchase parts at a significantly lower price than Amazon.

If a person only knows how to inflate tires and grease a chain, can they help?

Yes. Anyone willing to learn is welcome.

Can a person drop in to help for an hour here or there, or do you prefer them to commit to the entire time?

Yes, anyone is welcome for any length of time.

How are bikes distributed?

Two ways:  

  1. Neighborhood families that stop in are given a bike if they demonstrate a need. They are often invited to help with repairs or to bring in a bike they already own for repairs. 
  2. There are several service organizations in the area that refer their clients to us for bicycles. Some organizations prefer to have us give them bikes and they handle the distribution.
