Bikes For The World collects unwanted bicycles and spare parts & accessories, donating these items to community development programs serving the world’s poor. These bicycles provide affordable transport to low-income people for use in getting to work, school, or health care. Donated bicycles help receiving partner organizations create and operate self-sustaining programs and bike repair workshops. Beginning as a project of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association in January 2005, Bikes for the World became an independent 501 © (3) charity early in 2011. To date, it has collected and donated more than 58,000 bicycles--and is now the nation’s largest bicycle reuse program. We strongly support Bikes For The World's efforts and hope that you will too, by donating a functional used bicycle, spare bicycle parts or by making a monetary pledge at this year's SWAP.
