May 2011: New Yorkers donated bikes to Recycle-A-Bicycle
Bikes will be accepted by Recycle-A-Bicycle, an awesome local non-profit organization that works with NYC youth to teach bike repair and maintenance, as well as encourage environmental stewardship such as upcycling and carbon-neutral transit. With locations in the East Village and DUMBO, Recycle-A-Bicycle works on hundreds of bike every year â€“ and raises up some skilled mechanics. (In fact, weâ€™ve hired some of the folks who have come up through their program.)
RAB will accept bikes in any condition. And for whatever they accept, weâ€™ll give you a voucher.
So, get to it! Grab your old bikes, get ready to save $50 or even $100 â€“ and see you Sunday!
**Note: The trade-in will occur ONLY at our Brooklyn store, between 11am and 3pm. The voucher is valid at both store locations, but Recycle-A-Bicycle will NOT be at our store in Manhattan. Bikes can be accepted only at our store in Park Slope.
