DONATE YOUR BIKE

Without volunteers we wouldn’t be able to keep the dream and project alive. We have year-round volunteers that commit to support after school bicycle clubs rain or shine (usually rain). Some volunteers help with the maintenance of our 200+ bicycle fleet; others ride all the way from Seattle to Portland with students, and help with the logistics of running the project. The Major Taylor Project isn’t a typical volunteer role; it becomes a way of life. Volunteers have the opportunity to pass along their cycling torch for youth to enjoy. The high seasons for volunteers are usually in the fall/spring for bike club and the summer for STP.

Do you have any bicycles or gear that is in good working condition to donate to MTP? Drop by the Cascade Bicycling Center (7787 62nd Ave NE, Seattle) during business hours, and bring your bicycle back to life in the hands of an MTP student!

Consider joining the Major Taylor Project family! Once you're in, you won’t want to leave! Volunteer opportunities can be found online at cascade.org/volunteer or by emailing Rich Brown at richb@cascade.org.

GIVE TO MTP Your donations make our work possible. You can donate online at cascade.org/givemtp.

THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS Thanks to King County Metro, who provided the seed funding for the Major Taylor Project. Kaiser Permanente Washington (previously Group Health) has been a sponsor of the Major Taylor Project since its inception. Redline Bicycles donated the first Major Taylor Project fleet a decade ago, which we have just decommissioned and are fixing up to give to students. This year, Amazon and Diamondback donated bicycles for our newest fleet as we expand into other schools around the Seattle region. Clif Bar has donated thousands of bars, consumed by countless MTP students over the years. Nuun has kept the MTP students hydrated and cramp-free. And this year, Kaiser Permanente is supporting the MTP STP one-day riders with additional support from Wahoo Fitness, who donated gear to support the riders.
