Bikes for the World donated over 11,000 bikes and 22 containers in 2023. While we continue to collect more and more bikes, we are also working to improve the value of our shipments.

Thanks to our network of volunteers, who logged over 5,500 hours in 2023, we were able to remove the more marginal bikes from our shipments and rescue valuable spare parts, which rural mechanics need to repair our donated bikes. Last year we more than doubled the number of schools, scout troops and corporate groups who helped make our 2023 goals a reality.
