2018 has been an INCREDIBLE year at the Yellow Bike Project. In our 21st year, with the combined efforts of thousands of volunteers and and our small staff, we were able to:

  • Donate 252 refurbished adult bikes to organizations such as Caritas, Refugee Services of Texas, and Integral Care (up 50% from last year!)
  • Donate 450 kid’s bikes to Austin’s youngest cyclists
  • Welcome almost 1000 new shop users coming to use the tools and resources available at our Webberville shop
  • Host 2,791 volunteers logging over 8,000 hours of service
  • Repair, refurbish, and sell 548 bikes at affordable prices to put more cyclists on the street
  • Retrofit and repurpose 150 former bike share bikes for allies like Casa Marianella and Ghisallo Cycling Initiative
  • Recycle 25,450 lbs of metal

All of these numbers add up to more cyclists on the streets of Austin, not to mention some serious waste stream diversion! We couldn’t do this without your generous support – whether you purchased a refurbished bike, donated one, volunteered your time, or made a financial contribution- Thank you!

Your continued support will help us provide more bicycles and commuting accessories to Austinites that are in the most in need of reliable transportation and continue to keep the doors wide open for our inclusive, educational, and empowering community workshops where folks are able to get greasy, learn, earn and volunteer!

As we approach 2019, we ask you to consider making a donation to Austin’s Yellow Bike Project so we may continue to grow and make an even greater impact in the community. You can make a one-time donation or sign up to become a sustaining donor, and help us meet our goals. Thank YOU!

We are amazed at what we have been able to do this year and how far we have traveled together since the beginning – we can’t wait to see what can be accomplished together in 2019. Thank you for believing in the Yellow Bike Project, and the transformational power of riding a bike!

Love and Grease,
YBP
