Bikes, Parts,Tool, & Item Donations
Bring down an old bike, spare bike parts, or anything handy you aren't using anymore to give back to the community shop. We will either build these bikes back up or scrap them for parts-keep treasure out of the landfill! Free Cycles is also extremely appreciative of any item donations that may be useful for the workspace. For example, tools and art are commonly brought for use and enjoyment. People also bring by food, old clothes to be cut for rags, and more.

Structured Giving for Local Businesses
Cycling is great for business. Increases in cycling and bicycle infrastructure have been shown to increase local profits time and time again. For example, on Magnolia St. in Forth Worth, redesign to incorporate increased bike parking and bike lanes saw local restaurant profits increase 179%. Similarly, a more modest 49% increase in retail sales resulted from improved infrastructure in New York. Being on of the top ten cycling destinations within the United States, Missoula and Missoula's businesses have much to benefit from a thriving and healthy cycling community. We want to continue to help make this happen, and financial contributions are critical for us to continue our unique work, expand our programs, and bring plans to fruition that will better meet the community's needs. We greatly appreciate any support in advance! Please contact us for partnership opportunities.
