Have bikes at home you no longer use or bike parts because you upgraded your bike? We would love to have them!
We accept new or used bicycles…
Most of the bicycles that come into the program are used, unwanted and in disrepair, and our program provides an outlet for re-use and recycling.
Other places that donate bicycles: Lakewood and Arvada Police departments, City of Golden and City of Arvada community clean-up days, Colorado Christian University, various bike shops, and the Jefferson County Sheriff. We also continued to get many donations from individuals throughout the greater Golden-Arvada community. Some are broken, some are in good condition (even almost new), and some are trade-ins as kids grow. Community support though these donations is amazing.
Curious how many bikes we are getting? The Golden Optimists do not have an exact system for tracking bicycles, but this year’s estimate is that more than 550 bicycles have been donated.
We accept gently used bikes of all types for both kids and adults that we’ll recycle and get back on the road! Please drop them off at our shop at 1200 Johnson Rd., Golden, CO, between 1 and 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.
