We refurbish donated bikes to ride like new and then provide
them to those in need of transportation and independence.
We are happy to accept your donation of complete bicycles,
bicycle parts, or bicycle accessories. Tackle 4 Kids is a Section 501c(3)
non-profit organization, so your donation is tax-deductable to the extent
permitted by law.
Please email us a photo of what you'd like to donate and we'll
give you details of drop-off times and procedures.
Debating on whether you should fix up that old bike?
Often your tax-deductable bike donation makes more financial sense then spending
hundreds on repair work and parts. When you drop your donation, you could
also consider buying one of our nice, ready to ride refurbished bikes!
Most bikes get refurbished and are then donated to our partner charities.
Some bikes are sold to fund our repair parts, operations, purchase of fishing
equipment, or funds to other charitable organizations.
We accept bikes of all types and sizes, from tricycles up to
full-sized bicycles for adults. Flat tires and broken or missing parts are
no problem, as we have an extensive parts inventory. Our volunteer
mechanics can fix almost anything: however, we don't restore paint and we can't
reverse corrosion. We accept department store kid's bikes, but most budget
adult bikes from department are problematic because replacement parts are hard
Before donating your bike, ask yourself:
Could an experienced mechanic make this bike functional and
safe in one hour or less?
Is the bike substantially free of rust and corrosion?
Is the bike clean enough that you could offer it as gift
If the answers are all "YES" then we will gladly receive the
bike. Please clean up your bike before donating it so we can focus on
repairs. We Also accept
We refurbish each donated bike to ride like new. We donate
several bikes a year to those in need through partner non- profits in the local
Each bicycle takes about $40 and several volunteer hours to
repair and distribute. A monetary donation to cover these costs is super
appreciated and will the cycle going.
While the vast majority of our bikes are donated to those in
need of transportation, racing bikes, vintage bikes or mountain bikes are gladly
accepted and could help us fund our refurbishing or many additional bikes for
our partner non-profits.
We do NOT accept used helmets or cycling shorts.

Need a cheap commuter bike?
An affordable used bike to get to school? A bike to ride on the trails with
the kids? The T4K Colorado Bicycle Exchange likely has a bike that
will meet your needs.
We sell a portion of our
inventory to cover operating expenses which include parts, tools, rent, and
insurance (the Bicycle Exchange has just one paid staff member).
Each bike sold can cover the
expenses of refurbishing 4 to 20 bikes that we donate to those in need.
We sell a few of our bicycles to help fund our refurbishing work of the hundreds
of bikes we donate.
Prices are very reasonable, especially considering they have already been
completely refurbished by our experienced mechanics and ride like new (most
private party used bike sales require quite a lot of work). When you are buying
a refurbished used bike from T4K Colorado Bike Exchange, we can make some
adjustments related to fit on the spot, and you can purchase any accessories we
have in stock. Bicycles for sale are on a first-come-first-served basis.
