Donate Your Vehicle
Are you ready to part with your motor vehicle? You can donate your vehicle to support Bikes Together through Vehicles for Charity. Vehicles for Charity accept cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, boats, and trailers.
Bikes Together is a volunteer-driven organization. All that we do would not be possible without the generous donation of time from our volunteers. We have a wide variety of opportunities for you to help out. Volunteers refurbish program bikes, organize bike parts and the shop space, organize and attend events, provide general office support, and much more! More information is available on our volunteer page.
Have a bike collecting dust in the garage? Keep bicycles out of landfills by donating to Bikes Together, where they are reused or repurposed to benefit those who need a bicycle as a reliable means of transportation. We accept bicycles in acceptable condition, as well as parts and accessories. Even if the bicycle is broken we may still be able to reuse its parts.
Don’t have bicycles and still want to give? Bikes Together would greatly benefit from other in-kind donations such as office supplies and equipment, electronics such as computers, and clean used T-shirts for rags.

All donated bikes go to one of three places:
- Fixed by our mechanics and sold in our retail shop. This is our primary source of funding for all our programs and offers the community a low-cost option for a high-quality used bike.
- Our Rodeo or Bike Distribution Program, where youth and adults can receive a free refurbished bicycle, attend a maintenance and safety class, and get basic accessories with the help of our volunteers.
- Metal recycling: If the poor bike frame is completely unusable, we remove and salvage every working piece and then recycle the rest.
