Donations, Repair, and Retail at the Garage
Our mission is to get more youth and adults outside and active by increasing access to affordable, reliable gear.
We take in donations of used outdoor equipment and bikes and do full repairs before we re-sell it at affordable prices. Our knowledgeable staff and volunteers are here to help you choose a reliable commuter bike, custom-build your dream touring bike, outfit you with a tent and backpack for adventure, or size you to your first pair of cross-country skis. All proceeds support youth and adult educational programming here at the shop and at Camp Ketcha. As a donation-based non-profit, our inventory is always changing. We receive new donations every day and we process them as quickly as we can. Stop by often to see what’s new!

Bike Parade May 2017
Over 50 Volunteers helped us ride our bike inventory from our St. John St. location to our new shop at 155 Washington Ave. Youth, adults, and families biked tricycles, scooters, 3-speeds, road bikes, and kids bikes across town and along the East Bayside Trail. The Parade ended with cake and some great bike tricks. Thank you!
