Bicycle Donations

Donations of used bikes in good condition are taken whenever the shop is open. If you are getting a new bicycle, donate your old bike to Sharing Wheels. Adult bikes are fixed and sold to keep the shop running.

We need children’s bikes each fall and spring as we prepare for Christmas House and the Kids Bike Swap.

We ask for a $5 cash donation with each bike we accept to help defray our costs of repairs.

We do not accept all bikes. Some bikes are too rusty or abused to fix.  We may advise you to take it to the transfer station instead – they can recycle your bike, tires and all. Some bikes just take too many parts or too much volunteer time to make safe and rideable.

We do not buy or trade bicycles.

Sharing Wheels is a non-profit organization. The fair market value of bike donations is tax deductible. We are happy to provide a receipt for your donation.

Used Bicycle Sales

A wide variety of refurbished bikes are available for sale at our shop.  We don’t sell them until they have been checked for safety and overhauled if needed.

Sharing Wheels bikes range from low quality ride-around-town bikes for $50 to higher-end bikes costing $150 to $300 that you might use in your first triathlon or ride to Portland.

Generally, if you’re looking to get into biking at low cost, you’ll get more for your money at Sharing Wheels than buying a new bike.

We often sell the best bikes on Craiglist, so check us out.
