We Need Your Donated Bikes!
Back Alley Bike Drive on Wednesdays
Starting Wednesday, May 20th, 2nd Cycle is accepting bike and bike part donations at the shop on Wednesdays only from 11am-3pm in the alley behind the shop. The alley is between MLK and J Street and can be accessed from S 13th or Earnest S. Brazil Street. Our staff will be masked and social distancing to make the donation zone as safe and hands-free as possible. If you have a mask, wear it!
*Please note, donations cannot be accepted at the front entrance at this time.
What kinds of bikes and parts are we looking for?
-Quality used bikes that we can repair and offer to the community at affordable prices or use for youth programming.
-All styles and sizes: mountain, road, hybrid, bmx, kids
---Bikes should be mostly complete, free of frame damage or excessive rust
Some bikes are less serviceable than others; if you’re unsure that we can use your bike, email a photo before you visit to
-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.
Can’t bring your donations to the shop? We are still offering limited bike donation pick-up service in the Tacoma area. Email for more info.
Many thanks for your continued support. Handling donations through the alley will help protect customers waiting for service out front and keep our operations efficient and safe. Please do not drop off donations if you are sick or exhibiting symptoms of illness. Stay Home, Stay Healthy!
