Restoring donated bicycles to working condition is at the core of BiCi Co.’s mission. We repurpose used bikes and put them back into our community through diverse programs and used bike sales.

Please noteBiCi Co. has limited storage space and cannot always accept donations. BiCi Co. does not pick up bicycle donations.

Keep an eye out for announcements on our e-newsletter list and Facebook page about bicycle donation drives.

If you’d like to donate a high-quality bicycle in good condition, contact the Shop Manager ( to set up a drop-off time. Just keep in mind that low-quality bicycles (e.g., Roadmaster, Pacific, Mongoose, Huffy) are difficult to tune-up and repair. Working on these bicycles wastes time and resources that can be spent on more productive programs.

Even more than bicycles and parts, we need your help as a volunteer, a member, and a financial supporter.
