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: City of Golden and City of Arvada community clean-up days, various bike shops, and the Jefferson County Sheriff. Most of our donations are from generous 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 have a tracking system for bicycles, and in 2019 more than 770 bicycles were 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.
