Donating Bikes & Planning Bike Drives

Want to organize a drive, collecting 10 bikes or more? Contact us for tips and to schedule your drive!


 

 

Whether planning a bike drive or looking to donate a bike or two, here's what you need to know:

Bike donations are accepted Tuesday - Sunday from 11am - 4pm 35 Wilson Ave. San Jose, CA 95126. Pick up can be coordinated for bike drives.

    We accept:  

  • Quality bikes of all types and sizes * 

  • Bikes with flat tires or few broken/missing parts

  • Gently used parts and accessories

    We cannot accept:  

  • Bike frames

  • Used helmets, clothing or child seats

  • Bikes that have been to Burning Man

* Not sure if your bike should be donated? Ask yourself...

  • If purchased in a department store (e.g. Target) is it in like-new condition? *

  • Does it have minimal broken/missing parts?

  • Is it clean enough to offer as a gift? 

  • Is it mostly free of rust, corrosion, and dents?

  • Is it accident free?

* Department store bikes are not manufactured to be repaired and require new parts which become cost prohibitive.
