WELCOME

Troy Bike Rescue is a collective of cycling enthusiasts operating a volunteer-run bicycle resource space in North Central Troy.  We are committed to removing bikes from the waste stream and getting them back on the streets. We help to build bicycle community in the capital region through hands-on education.  You can join us!  We are always looking for new members who are interested in community and youth empowerment, creating safe spaces, questioning corporate car culture, and workin’ on bikes.  No experience necessary!

In these COVID-19 times, you need to MAKE AN APPOINTMENT for repairs and adoptions.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Volunteering is as simple as showing up to a shop session and beginning to participate. As a new volunteer you will have a lot to learn, like where we keep things, and how to answer the many questions you will receive, but be patient, and don’t be afraid to ask for help. The key to volunteering is coming back and creating a semi-consistent schedule for yourself and others. If you keep showing up, not only will you learn, but your presence will be appreciated.

DONATE BIKES & PARTS

During COVID times, we are screening our bike donations. Please email tbr.collective AT gmail DOT com to inquire. THANKS!!

DONATE MONEY

ADOPT A BIKE

Refurbished bicycles are available for adoption for a donation on a sliding scale. Bikes are grouped into several categories ($15-30, $30-60, $60-100, etc…), depending on quality and labor spent. Adoption Bikes are available on a first come first serve basis, and are sold “as is” (some may require some TLC). All proceeds from bike adoption fees pay TBR overhead. Without your donations, we cannot do what we do.
