Donate

Many ways to donate

There are many ways to donate! Monetary donations are primarily used for educational and philanthropic programs and donations of tools, parts and used bikes are recycled and put back into use. We provide tax receipts for donations! Bikes and bike related items can be donated anytime during normal business hours.

Help us help others

Used bikes that are donated may be parted out, refurbished, sold as is, or earmarked for our Bicycle Repair Class (and subsequently for the Biggest Little Commuter Program) or the Freewheels for Kids programs. Whatever it is, your donation helps get functional bikes into the hands of those who would not otherwise have access to them. If you would like to make a monetary donation, the buttons below allow you to make a one-time or recurring donation via PayPal.

Bikes, Bike Parts, & Accessories

We will take any bikes or bike parts in any condition. We also accept accessories in good condition (helmets, bike pumps, lights, locks, racks, baskets, etc.) and gently used cycling clothes/shoes. Donations are accepted during open hours. We want to make sure that your bike goes to good use, so in order to ensure its safety please do not leave your donation outside the shop when we are closed. RBP does not offer donation pick-up at this time.

Tools

We greatly appreciate any and all tool donations; however bike-specific tools and metric tools are the most utilized in the shop. Tools donations can be dropped off at the shop during open hours.
