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!

Youth and adults can obtain a bike by putting in 6 Learn & Earn hours working on Adoption Bikes and other TBR projects, which can be aquired during open shop hours and youth hours.

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

We are now accepting donations ONE DAY PER MONTH; on the Second Sunday of each month from 12-4 pm.

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.
