We are accepting bicycle donations during our open hours: 12pm-4pm Thursday-Sunday.
Community Cycles is able to do what it does because of thousands of generous used bike and part donations from the Boulder community. Your donation is a building block for our biking community, our education and outreach work, and our programs to benefit our low-income friends and neighbors.
What kind of bikes does Community Cycles accept?
All of them! We accept anything and everything bike-related, in any condition.
Will you pick up my donation?
We pick up bikes on the first Monday of the month between 8:00 and 5:00, within Boulder city limits. Please leave the bike in an obvious location, or note anything special when you sign up below to let us know you’d like us to pick up your bike. You will receive a tax receipt for proof of your donation in your mailbox. There is a $10 charge per bike for this service. Schedule your pick up now!
When can I drop off my donation?
We are accepting donations during our open hours: 12pm-4pm Thursday through Sunday so that staff may be prepared to safely handle bikes.
At this time we are NOT accepting donations of bicycle clothing or shoes. The regulations to deal with clothing and shoe donations require space we don’t have. Please either hold these donations, or donate to a clothing thrift store who will be better able to process them.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes, Community Cycles is a tax exempt 501(c)3 non-profit organization. You will receive a tax receipt for proof of your donation at time of dropoff.
Can I trade my old bike in for a new one?
No, Community Cycles has a strict no-trade-in policy. However, bike donors are welcome to participate in Earn-a-Bike, or you can always purchase a great refurbished bike from our showroom.
What will happen to my bike donation?
Many donated bikes support our Earn-a-Bike program. Some bikes are introduced into bike fleets around town, and other bicycles are donated to our low-income friends and neighbors. Other bicycles are sold in our retail shop at affordable prices, helping get more people on bikes, and supporting our great mission that bicycles are affordable and sustainable transportation.
