Give bikes

Sorry we are not collecting bikes at the moment. Check back in a couple of months or see other organisations below and in the map who may be able to help.

Planned B4H drop-off Locations

Give your bike a new life. When Bikes for Humanity are collecting, your bike can become a valuable asset for someone in need. To make sure your bike gets to communities we request a donation with the bike. Your donation makes a huge difference. It covers the cost of collection, shipping and makes sure your bike will provide maximum value for the receiving community. Without a donation our voluntary organisation is not able to help communities in need.

Click here or on the map below to find a place to drop off your bike.

Bikes for Humanity Sydney is working to secure a central warehouse to stockpile, sort and load bikes for shipping. Once we have secured a space we’ll be working with local partners to establish a broad range of locations for you to drop off your bike and make your donation to send it to communities in need.

Planned locations for Bikes for Humanity – Sydney Bike Drop Offs include:

  • Ride to Work Day (late 2010 – date TBC)
  • the BfH Warehouse
  • participating Bike Shops.
