What Impact will Your bike Make?

Bike Works models a way of living that reduces waste and repairs otherwise still usable items through bikes. Your bike donation helps the environment and our community.

The life of a bike at Bike Works is as varied as the people who ride bikes. Your bike donation can help:

  • Youth learn bike repair skills in a Bike Works Earn-a-Bike class
  • Give young kids the joy of biking through free bicycle giveaways
  • Build community for adults volunteering together to refurbish bike donations
  • Make biking affordable by being sold at low prices in the Community Bike Shop
  • Help the global community through one of our international partners
  • Create art through local artists “upcycling” bike parts

 

Bike Works depends on donated bicycles to keep our programs rolling. Every bike in every bicycle class, bike giveaway, or at the shop was donated to Bike Works by friends in our community.

What can I donate to Bike Works?

We accept bicycles of any quality and in any condition, bicycle parts of any variety, bike frames, and bike accessories or gear of any type! If Bike Works can’t use it ourselves then one of our partners surely can.

Can I get a receipt for a tax deduction for my donation?

Yes! After you drop off your bike, fill out this receipt for your tax-deductible donation.

Bicycles ready for donation are everywhere! Here are just a few ideas of where you might find that is a perfect fit for Bike Works:

  • An old bike that needs some love
  • A kids bike that your young one is too big to ride
  • Your old bike after you bought a new bike
  • That dusty bike you always see in your neighbor’s garage

Open Shop: Community Repair Space
Jul 30 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

What exactly is Open Shop?

Well, it is a self-directed space for adults to use our tools and repair stands with the help of a professional mechanic and volunteer “Hosts.” Open Shop is a friendly, safe, and non-judgmental environment to empower yourself to learn mechanics, help others, and build community! Fix that flat tire from last spring, or change out your handlebars to a comfort bar for commuting. There is no better way to demystify your bike than taking a wrench to it yourself!

Who can use the space?

Open Shop will be for adults only (+18).

Any work performed on your bike during open shop is your responsibility.

How much does it cost?

The space is available at a suggested cost of $5/hour for stand time, tools, and assistance.

Where is Open Shop?

Open Shop takes place in the heart of the Recycle & Reuse department, the Bike Works Warehouse. The Warehouse is located at 3715 S Hudson St. Seattle, WA 98118 – follow the driveway to the back of the building (park on the street and walk down the driveway or bike right on up to the front door).

Get a Punch Card

If you plan to use the space frequently then consider grabbing a punch card. Each space on the punch card is worth a full Open Shop Session (that is 3 hours of stand time per punch!). Punch cards are available in two increments:

  • 5 session punch card for $30 ($75 value)
  • 10 session punch card for $50 ($150 value)

You can purchase a punch card in the Warehouse during Open Shop or during Warehouse business hours (Saturdays from noon-5pm). For more information, please contact us!
