Should you have a bicycle or parts you wish to dontate, there are various organizations listed on this page under each state. International Organisations follow these. Many of these organisations operate via volunteers so have limited resources. Bikes can be picked up from people but where possible it is greatly appreaciated when they can be dropped off. They are always looking for people to get involved or assist with donations of bicycles. Assistance with transporting bikes is always needed. Should you have difficulty locating an organization near you, feel free to contact me and I will find your nearest group.
