The San Francisco Yellow Bike Project is a grassroots, pop-up, do-it-yourself, community-building machine that brings dead bikes back to life and puts more city dwellers on two wheels. It’s a healthy revolution for San Francisco.
Volunteers refurbish bikes. Then we sell them to the community to reduce landfill and raise funds for outreach programs. See our inventory here.
Volunteers collect, repair and build bikes for kids. We distribute them to local schools and youth organizations.
At our bike shop, volunteers complete a training program by building their own bikes from parts we’ve gathered.
We host community outreach events where volunteers teach basic bike safety and urban cycling skills to youth organizations.
The SFYBP community shop makes recycled and new bike parts affordably available—along with hands-on bike-repair training.
SFYBP partners with organizations such as the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and the San Francisco Veterans Association to develop programs that meet community needs.
We have a new location for our shop, but we need your help to build it out. Do you have lumber, building skills, heavy-duty shelving or rubber bins? SFYBP can use your help. Contact us
A great group of passionate volunteers makes the San Francisco Yellow Bike Project work like a well-oiled machine. With volunteer time, parts, money and expertise, we’re driving a revolution that's putting more recycled, repurposed bikes on the streets of San Francisco.

“SF Yellow Bike has been present at all of our bike builds, where we refurbish city-owned bikes for the community. Their team of volunteers nearly single-handedly refurbished 100 bicycles for homeless veterans last year.”
“I had no mechanic experience when I first stepped through the doors. The patient volunteers let me jump right in and guided me towards building my own steed. Without the affordable access to bikes that the Yellow Bike Project strives to provide, I’d still be waiting for the bus!”
Let us hear from you!
