YOU’VE GOT QUESTIONS? WE’VE GOT ANSWERS.
Can I donate a used bike? Unfortunately, we are unable to accept used bikes. However, we recommend you contact Urban Bike Project of Wilmington or Neighborhood Bike Works. Both organizations teach kids how to fix bikes and provide them the opportunity to earn a donated bike. They will happily accept your used bike donation!
I would like to donate a helmet. What sizes do you need?
Each bike is earmarked for a specific child. With over 100 children receiving bikes each year, we are able to pair any helmet size with a bike – boys or girls, ages 3 – 17.
Can I volunteer at the bike-build?
Thanks for your interest! Each year we have close to 100 volunteers at our bike-build: our staff and their families, clients and friends, and members of the cycling community. To that end, space is very limited and registration is required. To inquire about space availability, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610.430.3333, ext. 124.
I’m signed up for the bike-build – should I bring any tools?
Yes! If you have wrenches, a bike stand, pump, or other tools of the trade, please bring them along to assist in your bike-building endeavors!
I’m signed up for the bike-build, but I don’t know the first thing about putting a bike together!
That’s okay. We have lots of work that needs to be done without wrenching and ratcheting: pumping tires, recycling boxes, wrapping helmets, organizing bikes, etc. And if you want to assemble a bike, we have a talented and dedicated team of local gear-heads and cyclists who are happy to help!
How many bikes have you built?
To date, we’ve assembled 962 bikes for deserving children in the community.
