Bikes Not Bombs

Don’t know what to do with that old bike in your garage? Would love to re-cycle it or re-gift it, but wondering how and whom to give it to?

Check out the nonprofit organization called Bikes Not Bombs. They will take the bicycles, and ship them overseas to countries that really need them for transportation. They also train youths as bicycle mechanics so the bikes they send over work properly. Bikes Not Bombs is having their silver anniversary this year, marking 25 years of giving bicycles to 3rd world countries.

The organization also requests a $10 donation for each bicycle donated to help with their shipping/repair costs, but you get a tax receipt which you can use for your income taxes.
