Montgomery County Bike Drive Collects Nearly 300 Bicycles

Per Montgomery County: “The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is connecting people in the County who have a bike to donate with people who need one. On Friday, Oct. 20, MCDOT collected 290 bicycles at its annual one-day bike collection event in Rockville.

MCDOT sponsored the collection of child and adult bikes in partnership with Rockville Bike Hub and Bikes for the World. Volunteers from the organizations will refurbish the bikes and place them with children and adults in need through Bikes for the World, the MCDOT Bike Match Program and the Rockville Terrific Kids program.

This was the fifth year that MCDOT sponsored a bike drive (no events were held during two years of the COVID-19 health crisis). In those five years, the drives have resulted in the collection of more than 1,050 bikes. MCDOT operates a bike match program year-round through the BikeMatchMoCo program. Bikes donated through BikeMatchMoCo must be in ready-to-ride condition and should be cleaned and sanitized before drop-off.

Residents who wish to donate or receive a bike can do so by filling out the online form on MCDOT’s BikeMatchMoCo website. Once a donated bike has been matched to a recipient, a MCDOT representative will facilitate the donation and pickup. The bike donation deliveries are conducted separately, and all information is confidential.”
