We want your old bikes! Bring 'em on down. No need to inflate the tires or even dust them off! Bike drives will be conducted rain or shine, unless otherwise noted. Note that you can also bring your bike to Jamaica Plain any time!

We will provide you with a tax receipt for your donation, if you like. We also ask people to consider a $20 cash donation to BNB for each bike, which helps pay the shipping cost to send them overseas, but this is optional.

What is a bike drive?

A bike drive is an event, often organized by a volunteer, to collect bicycles for Bikes Not Bombs. Large drives will sometimes bring in over 200 bikes! These drives help us extend our network of bike collection beyond Jamaica Plain. If you have a bike to donate, you can always bring it to Jamaica Plain, but if you live further away, then hopefully you'll be able to find a bike drive that is closer.

Organize your own bike drive!
