Want to make a monetary contribution to our bike shop? Head over to our Patreon page to donate!
We are always accepting bike, component, and accessory donations. Please drop off donations any time during our open hours. Bikes can be in any condition and of any shape or size. You can pull up to our loading zone behind our building at 6016 3rd St. SW.
Please note that, unfortunately, we do not have the resources to pick up bikes.
There are three things that might happen to your bike once you donate it:
- Lightly used bikes in good working order will undergo a safety check and be donated to The Women in Need Society of Calgary (WIN)
- The Good Life Community will sell the bike. Revenue generated from donated bikes is what keeps our shop alive, covering about 90% of our costs and bringing us closer to sustainability beyond depending on grants.
- Unusable bikes will be stripped of useable parts and recycled. Way better than bringing it to dump!
Your used components are checked-over and sorted for re-sale at $5 for all our members, volunteers, greasers, and you, the community, to use or buy to replace parts on your bike or a shop bike.
