Donating Bikes and Gear

Donating Your Items to the Major Taylor Project

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Major Taylor Project with your gently used bikes, bike parts, or bike gear! Due to the Covid-19 outbreak we are currently not accepting donations at our office. 

But do not fear! Here are four great ways you can support our community and help to empower diverse ridership through your bike donations:

2nd Cycle

2nd Cycle is a community cycle center located in Tacoma, WA . Their mission is 'to demystify and normalize bike riding as a part of daily life and realize the bicycle as a tool for personal and community empowerment'. 2nd Cycle has long been a great supporter of the Major Taylor Project and they are in need of used bikes to build up their own fleet for youth programming. 2nd Cycle is accepting donations anytime during the open hours, or you can contact donations@2ndcycle.org to schedule a pickup or to ask any additional questions.

Bike Works

Bike Works promotes the bicycle as a vehicle for change to empower youth and build resilient communities. They are fully invested in their community and host many youth, community, and environmental programs such as their bike giveaway program, Bikes-for-All!, and free repair services in historically marginalized communities with their mobile bike shop, the BikeMobile. They also make it easy to donate your bike, parts, or accessories for use in their social enterprise bike shop and bicycle education programs

Decolonizing Bikes

Decolonizing Bikes is a volunteer community-led, community-focused bicycle project organized to connect unwanted bicycles with BIPOC, unhoused or financially-struggling individuals.’ If you’d like to support this effort and you have a second-hand bike with minimal maintenance needed and or extra parts to pass on please contact whistlingmarmot@pm.me

The Bikery

The Bikery, located in Judkin’s Park, empowers Seattle bicyclists and encourages cycling through collaborative hands-on education, social engagement, and fun.’ Although their workspace is currently closed they are accepting donated bikes and bike parts. You can make an appointment make an appointment to drop them off.
