Volunteer Your Wrenching Skills to Help Those in Need
You can use your bicycle repair skills to benefit your community at the new Santa Cruz Bicycle Exchange! The Exchange provides refurbished bicycles to those in need in Santa Cruz County. In addition to keeping unwanted bicycles out of the landfill, this service provides a clean and healthy form of transportation to those who could otherwise not afford it. Not yet a skilled mechanic? No Problem, learn as you go by working with us.
We are located at 982 17th Ave, Santa Cruz. Our workdays are held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month.
We use donated bicycles (SCBE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity) and volunteer labor to make all bicycles safe and fully functional. The Exchange distributes the repaired bicycles through existing Santa Cruz County social service agencies including Barrios Unidos, the Walnut Ave Women’s Center, Boys and Girls Club of Santa Cruz, and Community Bridges.
The Santa Cruz Bicycle Exchange is a program of the Bicycle Exchange, which was founded in 1993. Our organization delivers over 500 refurbished bicycles to local non-profits every year.
