Giving Used Bikes a New Home

Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop is a non-profit organization dedicated to “connecting unused bikes to people who need wheels.” Started in 2001 by a small band of bike enthusiasts, Sharing Wheels has provided refurbished used bicycles to thousands of adults and children through our programs and bike sales.

Donate Kids Bikes Now

We need a few more gently-used, easy to fix (no gears) kids bikes donated so we can shine them up in time for Christmas House. Donations are accepted during shop hours, 1 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, or during any of the work parties, below.

Work Parties for Christmas House

Volunteers of all mechanical abilities (or none) are welcome join us in the shop during open hours to help fix up kids bikes for low income kids. Special work parties are scheduled for:

Everett’s Community Bike Shop

We are located at 2531 Broadway in Everett, Washington and welcome everyone to join us in our shop. Our benches and tools are open to anyone who needs to repair a tire or a lube chain. We try our best to provide advice to repair and maintain all types of bikes.

Buy a Used Bike, Support the Shop

Donated bikes are available for sale after they are overhauled and in safe mechanical condition. Sharing Wheels also has used parts and some new parts for sale.

Bicycle and Cash Donations Welcome

We accept donations of checks or cash in our Everett location. Send a check by mail to Sharing Wheels, 2531 Broadway, Everett WA 98201 .

You can donate via your PayPal account:

Donations of new or used bikes in good condition are taken whenever the shop is open. With each bike donation we ask for a $5 cash donation to help buy the new parts or cleaner needed to make it look shiny for the next owner.

A completely new board of directors was elected Aug. 19 and will have their first official meeting on Sept. 9. You can read about the new board on our blog. If you have any ideas about Sharing Wheels or would like to volunteer to help with a board committee, send an email to sharingwheels@gmail.com

    Have you talked to the Everett Police Department about your need for bikes? I work at Trinity Lutheran Church and a year ago we had a bike left on our property, when we talked to a office about turniing it in to them we were told that they had over 400 unclaimed bikes sitting around and if we could find it a new home they would rather that then take it in. They may have some suitable for older, bigger children that would be useful.

      Thanks – Sharing Wheels does get bikes from the Everett Police Department, and other law enforcement agencies, on occasion. It’s easy to get used bikes. What’s harder is putting the time in to make sure the bikes are safe and rideable. That’s why we love our volunteers.

    I know a child in need of a bike how would that child’s caregiver go about getting a bike ?

      We sale bikes at reasonable costs. A childs bike will run from $20 to $100 depending on size and quality. Come by and see what we have.
