Donate your used bikes to refugees, veterans and young people

Please donate your used bikes for refugees, veterans and young people. We receive donated bikes on Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon at our warehouse at 6020 Jessamine #204, Houston, TX 77081.

Although our goal is to accept all bike donations, our rented storage space is getting near its capacity. This has reduced our ability to accept donated bikes. 

Our greatest need at this time is for adult mountain bikes and hybrids with 26-inch and 700c wheels. We also need youth bikes with 24-inch wheels. Most of our adult recipients are average height and weight, so extra large bikes are not currently needed. Our refugee and veteran customers rarely ask for road bikes or beach cruisers.

If a bike has been left outside for a long time or the handlebars, wheels, gears or derailleurs are damaged or have significant rust, we won’t be able to quickly repair it and prefer that it not be dropped off at our shop. We are happy to replace worn tires, seats or grips, but rusty or broken bikes are not worth the time or the cost of replacement parts. We don’t accept used helmets, smaller bikes, scooters or tag-alongs.

If it’s not economic to repair a donated used bike, we often reclaim parts and components from it that can be used on other bikes.
