Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition helps needy families and individuals through our Bicycle Exchange, which repairs used bicycles and donates them to our partner community service organizations. Our warehouse and workshop is fully outfitted with storage, repair stands and tools for year-round operation. All we need is you!
The Bicycle Exchange meets on selected Saturdays throughout the year to receive, repair, and distribute its inventory of donated bicycles. New volunteers learn bicycle repair skills by assisting a team of more experienced volunteers. It’s a lot of fun, and the results bring joy to hundreds of children annually.
Come on out to our next workday! No matter your level of bike mechanic experience, you can help. You’ll gain new skills and help children and families in need. No need to RSVP, just join us in the morning.
Tax-deductible donations of bicycles are also gladly accepted, especially children’s bicycles. Our program repairs and donates all types of bicycles. Our mechanics always have lots to do and none are paid so we appreciate your effort to clean up your bike before donating it so we can focus on repairs. Bring your donation to any of our Saturday workdays.
