Bike Collections

All of the bicycles that we provide through earn-a-bike programs or sell in the shop have been donated by community members. Without these donations, our work would not be possible. This year, we need to collect 3,000 bikes to support our programs, and you can help!

We accept bikes in good condition all year long. If you would like to donate a bike, but can’t get to our NE Alberta St. location, then our bike collections are for you.  Sponsored and organized by our generous supporters, bike collections give different communities an opportunity to clean out their garages and basements and to support the Community Cycling Center.

Listed below are our upcoming bike collections. All donations are tax-deductible and you will receive a tax donation receipt when you deliver your bike. To help offset the costs of transporting, evaluating and storing bikes, we request a processing donation of $5 for each bike.

Organize A Collection

Bike collections are a great opportunity to mobilize your workplace, place of worship or neighborhood to give their old bicycles a new life. Our staff will work with you to plan a fun, community-building event.
