    New question here. Where to donate used (clean and in good condition) MTB clothing, camelbacks and armor

    I'm looking for a place to donate new and used MTB jerseys, hydration packs (no bladders for obvious health reasons), and armor (cleaned if used at all)? I'd like to find a good home for it, preferably a non-profit. A lot of it is stuff I've bought that doesn't fit anymore since losing weight.

    I've tried Trips for Kids Santa Cruz, but they said they want only new stuff.

    Any other thoughts? The only other place I can think of is the NorCal High School MTB league.

    Bike Kitchen?

    Are there any local co-op's in your area? I know that we have a Bicycle Kitchen (located in Sacramento). Looks like there may be one in S.F. as well.

    Bike Kitchen San Francisco

    Good luck. I think it's cool that you are willing to donate your gear

    If you are ever in the east bay the Bicycle Trails Council will take the stuff and donate to local NoCal teams. Pm me.

    Try the recyclery in San Rafael. It is part of trips for kids but they sell the gear to raise money for the program. Here is the site:

    Awesome. Hopefully they need some gear in addition to jerseys. I'm trying to figure out how close they are to my office in SOMA/China Basin area.

    Everyone has given me a lot of good options. This is at least a good starting place.

    Sweet! I've given them a call, and I hope to hear back from them. If they can take it, it would be perfect.
