Project reCYCLE is becominig part of something much, much bigger! Exciting changes are coming 10.10.2020!
Since 2010, Project reCYCLE’s mission has been to transform our community’s well-loved bicycles into vehicles of hope for those in need, both locally and abroad. There is something inherently special and memorable about a person’s first bike, yet it is a sad and somewhat hidden fact that an unacceptable percentage of the youth and disenfranchised of our city have never experienced the joy of having a bike of their own, have had their bike stolen, or their hand-me-down bikes have become un-rideable from disrepair.
Over the past decade, Project reCYCLE’s amazing supporters have made it possible for our organization to donate over fifteen-thousand refurbished bicycles to the eager students in our Dream Bike Schools program, to the hard-working participants of our Earn-a-Bike program, to the foster children who attended our Bikes for Tykes holiday giveaway, to bike-centered job-creation partnerships in Africa, and to the recipients of our audacious dream of a bike for every person in our city through our Rides For All initiative!
To those who have made our organization’s wild ride of hope and inspiration even possible, YOU ARE Project reCYCLE. This new decade has already shown us that pushing back against the cycles of fear and poverty that negatively affect millions cannot be achieved on an island. In fact, it is in these very moments of yet-to-be-written history that those who still believe in hope can come together against all odds to achieve the impossible!
Searching for a Bike?
Yep, we have them! Our retail bike shop, The Kickstand, has hundreds of bikes in stock! In addition to spreading the joy of biking to our community, each purchase directly supports our mission. 100% of the proceeds of our refurbished bike sales go directly to Project reCYCLE’s general operating expenses and programming.
Visit TheKickstand.net to be redirected to our secure Online Square Store, which accepts all major credit cards along with Google and Apple pay. You can search our wide selection of bikes and other bike-related products with multi-angled pictures of each bike currently in stock, along with sizes, components, and other details. If you see a bike you just have to have and are worried it might be gone before The Kickstand’s next available in-person appointment, you have the option to purchase online and then utilize our curbside pickup process without ever having to leave your vehicle.
Looking for volunteer opportunities?
Do you feel overwhelmed by the thought of fixing bikes and don’t know where to start? Do you have bicycle mechanic experience but feel it’s time to expand your skills by learning how to true a wheel or bleed a hydraulic brake line? Or maybe you’re ready to pass on your skills to the next generation of bike mechanics by becoming one of our volunteer shift leads? Regardless of your experience level we have volunteering opportunities for you!

Have a bike to donate?
Your donated dollars, time, and bikes are what make it possible for us to fulfill our mission. To this end, we offer numerous convenient Project reCYCLE Donation Network locations around the Denver Metro Area, including at our community bike shop’s expanded hours! Please join us in gratitude and support for our network partners as they have worked with us for many years in providing the security, transport, and documentation of each and every bike that is donated to our organization through our ever-expanding donation network.
