Cycle Transitions relies heavily on donations of goods and services to fulfill its mission. Donating your used bikes and parts is a great way to support our mission and clear out your garage or basement at the same time. 

donated bicycles and parts

Items we find particularly helpful are:

  • Bicycles and Bike Parts (of course!)
    A whole bike, bike frame, or even useable bike parts are simply awesome. Useable bikes are either checked over, repaired and offered for sale at affordable prices or salvaged for parts. Bike parts are added to our inventory of second-hand parts that are also available at very affordable prices. If you’re not sure if the bikes or parts you have are reusable, feel free to drop them off anyway. Volunteers will check them out and make use of anything that we can. Any bikes, parts or tires that cannot be reused will be recycled.
  • Tools
    We love to receive bike tools, but many other types of tools are appreciated.
  • Rags and old cloths
    Bikes can be dirty and a supply of rags on hand is always needed.
  • Pickup of Donations
    We understand if you just can't get out to drop it off. Although our staff is limited, pickups of your good, useable bikes/parts may be possible by contacting
  • Monetary Donations
    Cycle Transitions will accept monetary donations of cash or cheque made payable to Cycle Transitions.


It's very easy to donate! Just drop by the shop with your donation during any of our open hours and a helpful volunteer will assist! If shop hours don't work for you, feel free to contact us and make other arrangements. Email us at

We thank you for your generosity! Although Cycle Transitions is a Not-for-Profit organization we are not a registered charity and therefore not authorized to issue income tax receipts for donations.
