Donating Bikes and Gear

Donating Your Items to the Major Taylor Project

The Major Taylor Project could use your bike! Your bike or gear may be used in the following ways:
  • Our Build-a-Bike program needs bikes and parts to teach youth how to assemble and maintain a bicycle. Graduates of this program receive their own bike.
  • We need good, quality bikes for students to ride safely for hundreds of miles during the riding season in our after-school bike clubs. 
  • Fundraising! Your items may be used to raise funds for the Major Taylor Project through sale at Cascade's Bike Swap event in February. 

Major Taylor Project can accept the following items:

  • Well-kept bikes in working or near-working order
  • Unused or like-new bike parts
  • New or lightly used bike clothing and shoes

If your items fit the above criteria, please fill out this form and use this guide to value your donation.  You can drop them off at our office without appointment during our donation drop-off hours:
