All of Phoenix Bikes’ youth and community programs rely on donated bikes! Bikes, bike parts, and accessories are earned and customized by our youth mechanics, used for Team Phoenix youth rides, donated to community members in need of transportation, or refurbished and sold at the shop to support Phoenix’s educational programs. Youth mechanics learn from Phoenix staff, volunteer mentors, and peers how to maintain and repair the bikes, while gaining business skills, problem-solving experience, and confidence that comes from concrete accomplishments and service to community.
Most our bikes come from individual donors who have realized they have a bike that isn’t being ridden as much as it should be. That bike in your garage could change somebody’s life!
Phoenix Bikes also gets donated bikes from:
- Apartments and Condos clearing out storage space
- College campuses cleaning up bikes left behind
- Police departments with unclaimed stolen and abandoned bikes
- Volunteers organizing bikes donation drives
