The UMass Lowell Bike Shop seeks used cotton textiles that are at the end of their life for bike rags.

Old cotton T-shirts, towels, and cotton sheets make the best bike rags.

Jeans, underwear, synthetic clothing, nylon or canvas do not work very well and will not be accepted.

Please drop off rag materials in clean condition to the Outdoor Center and Bike Shop during open hours. Please DO NOT leave rags outside the shop after hours.
