Donate Bikes, Parts, Accessories and Clothing

Your Donations Make Our Wheels Go Round!

Our programs are largely supported by bicycle donations. We reutilize used bikes and parts and sell them at discounted prices. The monies received go directly to operating our programs and get more kids on bikes. We are always in need of bikes and bike-related items in good condition.

Benefits of donating bikes and parts include:

  • Getting a tax deduction.
  • Having more space in your garage or storage areas.
  • Keeping your bike out of the landfill.
  • Helping someone who needs a bike.
  • Helping Trips for Kids positively change youths’ lives!

Accepted Donations

We gladly accept children, teen or adult bikes in good condition (missing parts are okay), and any clean, rust-free bike-related items: clothing, helmets, lights, bike racks, tires, tubes, wheels, rims, etc.
