Donate your used bike this Saturday

Saturday, May 8, 2010


Has it been stuffed in the back corner of a garage for years? Or is it in amazing shape and you just feel like giving it to a good cause?

Then donate it to Phoenix Bikes and Bikes for the World.

This Saturday Phoenix Bikes and Bikes for the World are holding a joint used bicycle collection campaign in Arlington.

Donations will be accepted from 9AM to Noon at three locations:

TD Bank
5510 Lee Highway
Arlington, VA 22207

Bishop O’Connell High School
6600 N. Little Falls Rd
Arlington, VA 22213

Phoenix Bikes
4200 S. Four Mile Run Dr
Arlington, VA 22206

Phoenix Bikes and Bikes for the World are both non-profit organizations so any donated bike is eligible for a tax write off. Any additional donation would be appreciated to help cover bike collection expenses.

More information on both organizations can be found at:
