We receive over 1,400 bike donations a year, from the general public as well as through Calgary Transit, Calgary Police Services and other partners.
All of the bikes at Two Wheel View have been donated - from the general public, Calgary Transit, Calgary Police Services and other partners.
Bikes that can be fixed are delivered to the shop for a full assessment by our senior mechanic. From here, they’ll be worked on by our staff and volunteers, repaired and tuned with new parts and accessories.
Every bike we receive goes through a complete mechanical assessment, to determine whether the bike should be repaired or recycled.
Some bikes will become Earn-a-Bike or GAP projects. These after-school program gives youth and young adults an opportunity to learn basic mechanic skills and earn a bike, helmet, lock and set of tools.
Higher quality bikes and parts are cleaned, repaired, and marked for sale in our social enterprise bike shop. Revenue from the shop goes on to fund TWV programming.
Whether a bike is given to a program participant or sold through our social enterprise, it gets a second chance with a new owner.
Thank you to all of our supporters and funders.

I started GAP in late February and in the beginning of the program I was very shy and didn’t talk very much but with each week and getting to know the staff, my confidence grew more and more with each day of GAP.
