Used bicycles become essential transportation
Freewheels Houston's shop/warehouse is closed through March 30 to comply with social distancing recommendations. No bike donations will be accepted during this time.
Hundreds of generous Houstonians have provided bikes for our program.
Our goal is to accept all types of bikes, bike parts and tools. Currently, however, we have limited storage space. Our greatest current need is for adult hybrid and mountain bikes with 26-inch and 700c wheels.
We receive bike donations during our work days on Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon at our warehouse at 6020 Jessamine #204, Houston, TX 77081 (southwest Houston near the intersection of Hillcroft and Bellaire).
Please complete the form (below) to let us know if you can drop bikes off during one of those times. If not, we can discuss other arrangements.
Donated bikes are evaluated by knowledgeable mechanics, repaired and cleaned.
If it’s not economic to repair a donated bike, we often reclaim parts and components from it that can be used on other bikes. However, it may not make sense for Freewheels to try to repair bikes that have been stored outside and that have extensive rust. The cost of replacement components and the time required for repair sometimes exceed our resources.
