Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible for a free, refurbished bicycle?

We here at Freedom Machines NY are dedicated to helping those in the recovery process begin to rebuild their lives and regain their independence. Anyone who has been in the recovery process for at least 90 days and is dedicated to living a sober life can qualify for one of our refurbished bikes. Please click here to apply.

What do I do with my refurbished bike once I am back on my feet?

First off, congratulations! We want to see everyone move forward in the recovery process, and are thrilled that the bike is no longer needed. Please pass the bike along to someone else who is in need of it. You can also contact us to return it, and we will make sure another person in recovery receives it.

I have a bike I can donate, what should I do?

Please contact us at and we will coordinate the donation pickup with you. Thank you in advance for helping us with our mission. Without these donated bikes, we could not do what we do.

Is there anything else I can do to help?
