The staff of the European Commission's Directorate-General for Mobility & Transport (DG MOVE) are organising a bike collection to support the #BikesForUkraine campaign.
Initiated by 6 Ukrainian NGOs, #BikesforUkraine is collecting bikes to help Ukrainian volunteers & community services.
The bicycle has become the main way of getting around in the Ukrainian cities that have suffered most from the Russian military aggression: Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Sumy and others. These cities are struggling with interrupted or non-operational public transport and a lack of fuel.
The bicycle is often the only option for delivering humanitarian aid and moving personnel working on critical services.
- Donate your bike(s) that you no longer use, but which are still in good working condition. Both bikes for children and adults are welcome. We also welcome electric bikes (with working batteries).
- Donate spare parts, bike trailers and saddle bags for carrying medical supplies, food, etc., child trailer bikes with one wheel, helmets, bike locks, lights for driving safely on damaged roads, pumps, etc.
- Spread the word! Use our visuals and activate your networks so that we reach a maximum number of bike-owners.
- Volunteer and help us repair donated bikes, ensuring they are fit for use. Get in touch by email.
Donate money to BE26 3770 1913 7329 (M. Kelly-Tychtl) to purchase second-hand bikes and spare parts, to support repair efforts and to cover part of the shipping costs.
Where & When
The drop-off is closed as we are soon going to ship the bikes to Ukraine.
