Donating to Our Recyclery Bike Shops

Have an old bike laying around that you don’t use? Upgrading to a new bike? Whatever your reason for parting with your beloved bike, consider donating it to your local Trips for Kids Recyclery shop and giving your bike a second life.

Donations are 100% tax-deductible (you’ll get a receipt) and bikes are either refurbished by our bike shop mechanics or salvaged for parts.

Buying A Bike

Our shop teams make it easy and fun to find the perfect bike! Knowledgeable and up-to-speed with the best bike technology, we’ll get you riding on a set of wheels best suited for your budget and style. If we don’t have something in stock for you, our staff will happily notify you if new inventory arrives that matches what you are looking for. By shopping at our recycleries, you’re doing your part by supporting a great cause!

Recyclery Community Bike Shop

BIKES & PARTS MAKE OUR WHEELS GO ROUND!

Trips for Kids operates ‘Recyclery’ bike shops that help support our youth cycling programs. These shops are more than just bike stores; they keep used bikes out of landfills and provide affordable, environmentally-friendly modes of transportation.

<<< And by the way, we do not condone using a hacksaw on a bicycle, unless it is being recycled for the steel! In the photo, left, Trips for Kids mechanics jokingly pretend to saw a bicycle in half. (Do not try this at home, kids)

MORE THAN A USED BIKE STORE

How does it work? Bikes, parts and supplies are donated by community members, bike manufacturers and retailers. Since we are nonprofit, donations are tax-deductible. The bikes and parts are then given to students who earn them, or sold to the public during store hours.

GIVING BIKES A NEW LIFE

Our specialized volunteer or paid mechanics and trained youth refurbish and spruce up donated bikes and parts so they can be resold at discounted prices. All profits made from these sales go back to support our youth biking programs!

A COMMUNITY RESOURCE

Recyclery bike shops are often the location of our Earn-a- Bike workshops, and provide a safe, positive after-school environment for kids and community members to meet, work and socialize.

HELPING THE ENVIRONMENT

Recyclery bike shops around the country keep thousands of bikes out of landfills each year and provide affordable, environmentally-friendly modes of transportation for community members.
