Do you have an old bike or bike accessories collecting dust in your garage? Please consider donating it to Redemptive Cycles!

Redemptive Cycles accepts donations of new and used bicycles, bicycle parts and bicycle gear in any condition. These donations enable us to serve the local Birmingham community directly through our Earn-A-Bike and Sliding Scale Repair programs and by raising funds to cover operating expenses through our retail shop. All donations can be made at our Bike Shop at 1305 2nd Ave N #101, Birmingham, AL 35203 during our business hours : 10a-6p, Tues-Sat. 

If you live within 10 miles of the shop, we can even come pick-up your donation!!! Call (205) 224-5631 to schedule an appointment! 


OUR PROCESS

All donated bikes go helping our organization. Here is how:

  1. Refurbished by our mechanics and sold in our retail shop.  This is our primary source of overhead support and helps us keep the lights on and pay our people.
  2. Refurbished by our mechanics and distributed through our Earn-A-Bike program, where those in need can earn a bicycle by giving 8 hours of service to the community, and 4 hours with our shop. 
  3. To a local child: any child ages 2-15 whose parent/guardian express financial need can receive a FREE bike, refurbished to like-new by our mechanics. 
  4. In the rare instance that the bike is has 'fatal flaws', we strip every working piece off and recycle the rest!

We accept new and used bicycles in any condition.  

We accept all kinds of bicycle parts and bicycle gear such as bells, baskets, bike flags, locks, trailers and bike clothes.

Redemptive Cycles is a Non Profit 501(c)(3) TAX EIN : 46-3471015 and we are happy to provide a tax-receipt for ALL donations.
