SHOP HOURS: Tuesday and Thursday 1-5 pm.

Get a bike:

To get a bike, please visit our bike shop at 1200 Johnson Road, Golden CO.   The number and type of bikes of repaired and ready on any given day varies, as we are all volunteer and very busy trying to meet demand.  Typically, we have between 10 and 15 adult bikes ready.  You may need to stop by more than once to find the type and size you need. We ask for a minimum of $25 for a regular repaired adult bike ($10 child’s), and also have some of the better bikes available for a higher amounts.

Volunteers needed:

Volunteers are welcome any time on a regular or drop-in basis during shop hours. No experience necessary.  For volunteer opportunities Click Here.


The Optimists 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. Email us at [email protected] to arrange for donations outside of operating hours.

The Optimists also accept monetary donations for parts, helmets, tools and materials.
