Rusty's Bicycle Recycle

Giving the Homeless a Lift - One Bike at a Time


Rusty’s Bicycle Recycle is a 100% volunteer organization, no employees.  We repair donated bicycles and deliver them to partner charities who serve the unhoused, including homeless veterans and foster children.  Many of our volunteers have been associated with the organization since its inception.  Our charity relies on Public Support and donations to repair and deliver donated bicycles.


Our bike mechanics provided over 1,700 bicycles to the unhoused and needy in the Orlando area during 2022. We are on target to provide over 2000 bicycles in 2023. Rusty’s Bicycle Recycle is located in Longwood, Florida, which is in northern Greater Orlando Metropolitan area.

Contact us to donate your unused bicycles, or to volunteer your time.

We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, and your donations are tax-deductible.
