Donate your old bikes

Support Our Bike Drive (And the Boys & Girls Club)

Do you have bikes you no longer need cluttering up your garage or basement? Bring them to West Windsor Farmers’ Market (Vaughn Drive parking lot, off Alexander Road) between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept 22 for the WWBPA’s bike drive to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Trenton.

Bicycles of all sizes and condition are gratefully accepted, and donations are tax-deductible. Last year, we collected more than 50 bikes, and this year, we’re working to do even more.

The bikes are refurbished by the volunteers of Bike Exchange and sold at their store in Ewing. Proceeds fund the Boys and Girls Club’s after-school programs. This amazing group had already sold more than 500 bikes THIS YEAR and raised thousands of $ for the Boys & Girls Club. (Watch this video about Bike Exchange and Boys & Girls Club.)

Bike Exchange also supports the WWBPA’s “learn to bike” classes by lending us a few bikes just in case a participant needs a slightly different size. Sometimes that makes all the difference!

If you miss the bike drive, several area bike shops serve as drop-off sites.

If you’re looking for a bike for your child that you know will be outgrown pretty quickly, this is a great place to consider. It’s also a great place to find authentic retro bikes, among other kinds, for adults. (It’s not a replacement for a bike shop, just a nice addition).
