The Pivot App Big Bike Drive - Presented by Ohio's 529 College Advantage and Johnny Velo Bikes

With your help, we can get your leftover bicycles, accessories, and equipment to those in need here in Central Ohio, and beyond! Here's how it works:

On Saturday, May 29th and Sunday, May 30th, from 10am to 4pm, we'll have a team of volunteers on The Lawn at CAS (2540 Olentangy River Rd) ready to collect your donations to be assessed, repaired, and redistributed from there! Donations will be handle "drive-thru" style for the safety of both you and our volunteers - you don't even have to get out of your car! See below for a map with details on where donations will take place.

The Big Bike Drive would not be possible without the support of our Title Sponsor, the Pivot App as well as Presenting Sponsors, Ohio's 529 College Advantage and Johnny Velo Bikes

We'd also like to thank the following organizations for their expertise, volunteer assistance, and facility use:
Franklinton Cycle Works | Yay Bikes!CoGo Bike Share and Lyft | CAS

So how exactly will the process work? All you need to do is simply arrive with your donation and we'll take it from there. With every donation we receive, our on-site experts will determine if the bike can be immediately donated or in need of repair. Unsalvageable donations will be responsibly recycled. From there, donations will be provided to organizations like Franklinton Cycle Works, Third Hand Bike Co-op, and Bikes for All People, finding their way to the hands (and legs!) of those in need!

The goal of the Big Bike Drive is simple: make bicycling more accessible. With the popularity of biking throughout quarantine, as well as reduced product availability due to supply line interruptions, there is oftentimes not enough supply to make up for the demand! By creating an opportunity to donate equipment that no longer gets any use, we're hoping we can make biking available to many who may not have the chance otherwise!
