ReCycle @ Bike Walk Wichita: ReCycle Bikes!
Help us ReCycle bikes – take donated bikes and get them ready to be used by people who need a bike!
For the people that ReCycle@ Bike Walk Wichita works with, a bike is not a toy; it is a tool. It is a way to get around quickly and independently. A bike is a way to get to school, work, and resource centers, and hopefully rise up out of a very difficult situation. Especially for the youth, it is a means to travel without relying on someone who might expect an illicit or illegal favor in return.
We work with various agencies to provide bikes for people who need one, such as the Wichita Police Dept Homeless Outreach Team; United Methodist Urban Ministries; His Helping Hand; Wichita Children’s Home Opportunity Zone; International Rescue Committee. Goodwill Industries has been very generous in providing bikes to ReCycle. Anyone can sign up to earn a bike as well, just volunteer at Bike Walk Wichita and we’ll get you rolling. Our volunteers work together to help each other.
Sign up for a shift – we’re here every Saturday from 10-4pm and Tuesdays/Thursdays 6-8pm. If you are interested in a hands-on way to change someone’s life – maybe even your own – join us during one of our work times. No experience necessary, we have lots of different things to do for people of any skill level.

Hey my bike was stolen! There is a Facebook page SedgwickCountyStolenBikes where you can post about a stolen bike. Lots of people view this page, it seems like the best way to get the word out. Also, be sure to file a police report in case the bike is recovered.
