Have a spare bike that's gathering dust in your garage? Do you have an extra U-Lock that you aren't using anymore? Gearing Up will gladly accept in-kind donations of bicycles, clothing, U-locks (with key) and cables, hats, gloves, and more. Please see below for our donation policy and information on how you can help.

Clothing/ Gear: 

Gearing Up needs gently used, never crashed in helmets. We have a sufficient amount of cycling clothing thanks to some very generous recent in-kind donations. 

Gearing Up has a sufficient amount of sneakers and cycling shoes for any riders who are interested in learning to ride with clipless pedals.

U-Locks and Cables:
Gearing Up is in need of used or new U-Locks (must have both keys) and cables for Earn-a-Bike recipients to properly lock up their gently used bicycles

Bike Donations:
"Earn-A-Bikes" will be given to riders who have pedaled 150 miles. Gearing Up can only accept bicycles that meet the following requirements:

• The bicycle is currently in safe, working condition or has been looked over by a mechanic
• The bicycle is not older than the year 2000
• Wheel sizes of 700c
• Hybrid or Road bikes only, no mountain bikes

If you are not sure if your bicycle meets these requirements, please email [email protected] with a picture of the bicycle. From there, we can assess whether we can enter the bike into our fleet of earn-able bikes and arrange a drop off time with you.

**Please feel free to email [email protected] with any other questions or concerns regarding donations for Gearing Up**

All individuals who donate items will be sent a tax-deductible in-kind donation form and thank-you letter. Donations can be dropped off at the Gearing Up office (drop-off times can be arranged with us via email) or donations can be mailed to the Gearing Up office at the following address:
