Have a Bicycle to Donate?

Right on! We’re all about being sustainable, recycling, and helping others – and stoked you feel the same way too. While HBL does not regularly take in bike donations (our office is quite small!), there are some times that we can make exceptions for taking in new/like-new bikes (such as around the time of HBL’s Fundraiser Event + Silent Auctions).

We’ve compiled a list of places on O‘ahu that will welcome your bike donation. Please read the descriptions below to get to know our community partners, when they are open & where they are located, as well as what kinds of donations they will accept.

Kūpuna Shed (formerly “Men’s Shed”)

Kūpuna Shed is “It’s a community workshop primarily for older men, however, women are welcome. Building things, repairing things and tinkering are part of a man’s DNA. The traditional garage shed is becoming a thing of the past. Men used to get together at the local coffee shop or corner garage, but they are disappearing. That is why the notion of Men’s Sheds was born. It all started in Australia in 2006 and has now spread around the world. Australia has more than 1,000 Sheds and three Sheds a week are opening in England. The Honolulu Men’s Shed Association started in early 2016.”
Accepted Donations:
10:00 AM to 5:00 PM Every Day
Now located at NORTH NIMITZ HWY, PIER 20. On Google GPS only, use this address: 619 Kukahi St Honolulu, HI. OR: Follow the signs on Nimitz to piers 18-23. Travel towards the water and the Shed will be on your right after the Ferry Terminal.

KVIBE (Kalihi Valley Instructional Bicycle Exchange) is a “nonprofit bicycle education program/shop that promotes bicycle-related activities for Kalihi Valley.” They get donated parts and bicycles and have children work to build them up, eventually earning their own bicycle(s). They not only give the youth a safe space to learn how to work on bikes, but teach the youth life skills and about their cultural roots.

As of 8/3/2020 the KVIBE open hours will be:

Wed, Fri, Sat – 10:00am-4:00pm

All of the bikes the Cycle Manoa sells at its semesterly bike sales for students are received as donations, and money is collected only to cover the costs of parts and tools necessary to fix them.  You can help us keep our program running by donating any whole bikes, parts, or tools you have lying around.  Stop by the shop during our weekly hours, or get in touch and we’ll coordinate a drop off.  Every little bit helps!
