Anson’s Bike Buddies is a Columbia Gorge Non-Profit Organization. Anson’s Bike Buddies started as an idea formed in conjunction with Anson’s realization that there are children in his community who cannot afford a bicycle and the monthly service projects adopted by his school. Anson’s parents, Jeff Pulk and Kristen Campbell, and his mentor, Jeff Craven, a Mountain View Cycles bike mechanic, supported Anson’s idea to create a service project aimed at collecting used bicycles, repairing them and partnering with other local non-profit organizations, such as The Next Door, to donate the bicycles to mid-Columbia children who may not otherwise have access to a bicycle. This idea became Anson’s Bike Buddies, a non-profit organization with this mission: “Donate a Bike—Change a Life.”
We collect bicycles from our participating drop-off locations on a weekly basis. Bikes are brought back to our repair shop and inspected. If a bike cannot be repaired for reuse, we dismantle it and inspect each part for future use. Repaired bicycles are donated.
Do you have a bicycle that you would like to donate in Hood River, Wasco, Klickitat or Skamania Counties or do you want to host a bike drive at your Church, School or place of work? Click on one of the buttons above to learn more.
You can also drop off a bike at any of our drop-off locations which are year round donation sites for Anson’s Bike Buddies.
If you are an organization that we could potentially help by providing bikes, please contact us to discuss your organization and needs and our qualifications and see if we can help.
