Changing Tires, Changing Lives – Partner organizations that serve people in our community experiencing homelessness or extreme poverty can request bicycles for their clients. We provide durable and reliable refurbished bicycles that help people find and commute to work, attend healthcare appointments, visit loved ones, and get exercise.
Second Chance Bicycle Thrift Shop – We are excited to expand our mission of providing affordable bikes to the general public! If you need a bicycle but cannot afford the price of a new bike, find your next bike at our warehouse. We have hundreds of bikes available. Many need some work which you can do at our warehouse using the tools and parts we provide.
Give Back for Racks – We are encouraging people to ride bikes in North Charleston by providing secure bicycle racks throughout the city. In partnership with the City of North Charleston, 83 bicycle racks will be installed in areas where people are already going by bike. Businesses and community organizations have the opportunity to sponsor racks.
Bicycle Recycle – Bicycles end up in landfills every day. Instead of rusting away, we take bicycles in any condition- no matter how rusty- strip them of usable parts, recycle the rubber, and scrap steel and aluminum. Though this process is time-consuming, we are committed to making sure that even the most rusted bicycles get a Second Chance.
Pop-up Repair – People who lack access to bike shops have trouble staying on the road. We provide free repair and adjustment for our Second Chance Bikes at partner organization sites.
