Donate your old, reusable bicycle

If you have a bicycle that can be repaired and reused, consider donating it to Food Finders, Boy Scout Troup 29, or Meals on Wheels between now and December 4th.

Thanks to a grant from the City of Long Beach and Waste Management, the above organizations will receive $20 for each bicycle collected (up to 150) and donated in turn to the H.U.B.—the Long Beach bicycle repair cooperative.

The H.U.B. is run by volunteers. The H.U.B. has bike stands and tools which you can use under the guidance of experienced bike mechanics. Used parts are available at low cost. Local youth learn how to make adjustments and simple repairs on donated bikes.

To donate a reusable bike at a time and location convenient to you, contact Meals on Wheels at (562) 438-6215, or contact Boy Scout Troup 29 at (310) 238-7011, or contact Food Finders at (562) 598-3003.

The Long Beach ‘Bicycle Roundup’ is an initiative of the City of Long Beach and Waste Management to support cycling in Long Beach and to assist the H.U.B. bike coop. The H.U.B. is open Sunday and Monday afternoons. It is located on Long Beach Blvd. just south of PCH.
