There is a special bond between a kid and a bike that can never be broken.
Riding a bike is a rite of passage, a passport to worlds beyond the front lawn.
Bikes represent fun, freedom and fresh air.
Moreover, biking is a healthy pastime that develops strength, balance
and overall fitness that kids will never outgrow.

About us

The Recycle-a-Bicycle Project is a community outreach program in Midland. It was formed for the purpose of repairing and reconditioning bicycles that are no longer used or wanted, and to provide these bicycles to children and adults who need a bike but cannot afford one. Midland is blessed with a large biking community with the skills and interest to repair and recondition these bikes, and who have the heart to want to help others. To date over 1200 bikes have been refurbished and donated.

The Tri-City Cyclists board of directors has endorsed this project.

What can you do to help?

  1. Donation of bikes (and good quality parts) Contact the RAB Team to find out how.
  2. Donation of money to purchase the parts, cleaners, and lubricants we need for reconditioning. Send checks payable to Tri-City Cyclists with Recycle-a-Bicycle specified in the memo field to:
