Freewheels wants that bike in your garage that you are no longer riding.
Our greatest need is for adult mountain bikes and hybrids with 26-inch and 700c wheels. Although our goal is to accept all bike donations, our current capacity to store children’s bikes is very limited.
We receive donated used bike during our workdays on Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon at our warehouse at 6020 Jessamine #204, Houston, TX 77081 in southwest Houston.
Donated used bikes are evaluated by knowledgeable mechanics, repaired and cleaned before they are given to someone who needs transportation to work or school.
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. 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.
