About Recycle Bicycles

Recycle Bicycles gladly accepts donations of used bicycles and related items. Our volunteers redistribute them at no cost to inner city shelters, housing projects and schools.  Since 1994, the collective has redistributed over 22,000 bicycles!

Recycle Bicycles wishes to thank all of our donors throughout the community, especially area bicycle shops for the numerous bikes, supplies and advice over the years. A special thanks to the five area Bicycle Village stores for their continued support throughout the years. Bicycle Village is very active throughout our community, supporting a variety of events and organizations that have a positive impact.  Campus Cycles has also been invaluable collecting donated bicycles.  We encourage you to visit any of these stores for your bicycle needs.  

Cube Smart Storage at Broadway & Mexico has also been invaluable for donating storage space, collecting bicycles, and loaning us their trucks. The collective would be crippled without their help.  RTD-Denver has provided thousands of bikes over the years.
