Find our more about some of our projects here –

The Melbourne Bicycles For Humanity Chapter was established in 2008 – the first in Australia.

As a grass-roots volunteer run organisation we run on donations. We always need more hands, your bike will make a huge difference and a financial donation will allow us to get the bikes to those who need them most.

Donating Your Bike

Please note that we can only accept working or easily fixable bikes as donations. In the developing world the most useful are  adult sized sturdy hybrids or mountain bikes. Generally we can’t accept small children’s bikes as we are routinely over run with them however clear we make it that they can’t usually be used. Sorry – as a volunteer run organisation we need to be as efficient as possible with the time we are able to give to the project.

If you have an adult sized bike in reasonable condition that is unsuitable for the developing world we can still use it to benefit the project by repurposing it for use here through partnerships with other bike based charities – it will certainly be put to good use and find a new life.
