Freewheels Houston repairs and builds bikes for refugees starting a new life in Houston

Donate your used bike

You may donate a used bike to Freewheels Houston and our volunteers will restore it to create safe and reliable transportation for a refugee, veteran emerging from homelessness or young person from a low-income family. 

Our riders prefer mountain bikes and hybrids

Our greatest need is for adult mountain bikes and hybrids with 26-inch and 700c wheels. We also need youth bikes with 24-inch wheels. Our refugee and veteran customers rarely ask for road bikes or beach cruisers.

We do not accept used helmets, children’s bikes, scooters or tag-alongs.

If it’s not economic for Freewheels to repair a donated used bike, we often reclaim parts and components that can be used on other bikes. We have partnerships with people who will take bikes we don’t plan to repair and deliver them to organizations in Mexico.

When we receive a road bike, we may try to sell it and and use the proceeds to pay for parts, supplies, safety equipment and rent. 

Freewheels accepts bike donations on Friday and Saturday mornings
