Donate a Bike

Instead of trashing a used bike, why not give it a Second Chance? We collect, repair, and distribute used bikes to people who need affordable transportation the most.

We currently are accepting bikes in good condition that have been approved via text or email. Please text a photo of the bike you’d like to donate to 843.608.8383 to see if we can accept it. You can also email us at

Once your donation has been approved, you’re welcome to drop the bike off at our shop anytime we are open.


As a small nonprofit with limited resources, we ask that donation bikes are in relatively good condition and have minimal rust. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept all donations, and we reserve the right to refuse to accept bikes. We usually do not accept bikes that we will not be able to fix. Sometimes, we will accept ‘unfixable’ bikes if we want to salvage some parts to use for repairing other bikes. As a general rule, we do not take ‘department store” bikes, unless they are in near-perfect condition and suitable for one of our programs. Please check out this link to learn why.

We are currently not accepting donations of youth bikes. We’ll have a drive to collect these in the fall.

We never accept ‘full suspension’ department store bikes, regardless of condition.

Example pictured below. PLEASE do not drop these off.

If you are unsure about a bike you would like to donate, please feel free to email or text us (843.608.8383). Please include some photos and any information that you think may be helpful.

For donations of large lots of bikes, such as from apartment complexes or schools, we may be able to schedule a pick-up for a fee of $50 to $75 per load (approx. 20 bikes per load) depending on location. Please email us to find out more.
