Doing Some Spring Cleaning? Donate that old bike.

We tend to think the best bikes to have are the ones that get ridden. Do you have something gathering dust that you may want to donate? Check out our resource page here for organizations you can donate used bikes to ranging from cities like Mankato, Rochester, the Twin Cities and Duluth. Did we miss any? Email us at [email protected] to get another organization added to the list.

Now You’ve Got More Space for More Bikes!

By this time, the Twin Cities Bicycle Club and Biking with Baddies bike swaps will have already occurred, but we’re aware of one more this spring, sure to have plenty of used bikes, parts, and accessories to dig through. Twin Cities Bike Swap May 19 Long Lake Park (a benefit for MN Cycling Center).
