Volunteers with any level of experience are invited to help out at the Freehub. Please send an email to or come by during our hours for more information.

Support us by donating

The Freehub relies on monetary donations to operate. Please consider bringing a $5-$10 cash donation when you visit us if you are able to. Alternately, you may donate to us online through our store.

Due to limited space, we generally cannot accept complete bikes, frames, or wheels at this time. If you have smaller parts to donate, such as shifter, brake, drivetrain components, or accessories, please contact us at before you visit.

You may also consider using the City of Guelph’s bicycle reuse program to recycle your working-condition used bicycle. Visit for how to donate and how to obtain a free used bicycle.
