You can donate bikes, parts and accessories (including car racks) anytime that the shop is open.
All styles and sizes of bicycles are generally accepted. Donated bike parts should have limited wear and no damage. Please have parts in a container that you can leave with us, like a paper bag. Containers will not be returned.
If you’re unsure that we can use your bike, email a photo and description to donations@2ndCycle.org. Can’t bring your donations to the shop? We are creating a network of volunteers to pick up donations in the South Sound; just email us to coordinate.
As a registered 501c3 non-profit, Second Cycle relies on material donations from the community to support our mission and programs. We process more than 1,600 bicycles each year, along with nearly 10,000 pounds of parts and accessories.
Quality used bikes can be repaired and offered to the community at affordable prices. Other serviceable bikes are restored and distributed through in-house youth programming and partnerships with other community organizations and schools. Bikes that are not serviceable can often still be used as instructional tools and any functional parts can be gleaned for resale or reuse.
Email donations@2ndCycle.org for more info.
Monetary donations help us offset the cost of processing donated materials. You can donate here. All monetary and materials donations are tax deductable where applicable.
Many thanks for your continued support!
