The CultureLink Bike Hub at 15 Tobermory Drive (near Jane & Finch) in North York supports local cyclists and fosters a culture of repair and reuse. We help people fix their own bicycles, and provide bike repair workshops on-site and in the neighbourhood. But people don’t need to have a bike already to benefit from this project. That’s because we collect used bicycles, salvage the good parts, and build up new bikes. In these ways, we reduce the waste that goes to landfill or scrap metal recycling. At the same time, more people get to enjoy having a bike that works! It’s a win-win for everyone.
We accept donations of bikes, bike parts and bike equipment in all shapes and forms! If you have a bike you no longer use, extra equipment, or other bike parts, please bring them over to our Bike Hub, and we will make sure they will be brought back to life by our dedicated staff and volunteers and given away to those who need them. You can drop the bike to our location (15 Tobermory Dr, North York, ON M3N 2R5), during our opening hours (that is Tuesdays from 3 PM to 6 PM and Saturdays from 10 AM – 3 PM) or arrange a different time and location by ending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you so much for your generous donations!
