Recycle Cycles

Updated: August 14th, 2023

Recycle Cycles is currently closed during our move

Recycle Cycles Community Bike Shop is moving to a new location at 256 King Unit B over the next month!

We are excited to recreate Recycle Cycles as a storefront operation on King Street. That is just across the parking lot from where it is now.  When we open we will offer increased bike stand appointments for booking bike repairs. As well, we have been increasing the number of refurbished bikes available for sale. We are looking forward to opening in our new space.

The move is part of the plan to repurpose the 97 Victoria N property by creating 44 apartment units for those without housing and to rebuild St. John's Kitchen. Please visit Making Home to learn more.

To make this possible, Worth a Second Look will move to the Market Lane building and Recycle Cycles is moving to 256 King E, Unit B..

All this means we need to close down for about a month, while we relocate, and re-establish ourselves in our new location.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but we will be back and reorganized in exciting new ways to welcome you.

Thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you again!


Recycle Cycles community bike shop

We offer DIY (do-it-yourself) repair, Recycle Cycles repair (we fix), or used bike sales. For DIY you just pay for the used parts you need. Typically less than $15. The repair station and tools are free of charge. If you want Recycle Cycles to repair your bike we charge only $25 per hour plus used parts as needed. A typical repair is less than $40 for both labour and parts. Used bikes are available for sale and are often in the $50 - $100 range. They are available on a first-come first-serve basis.

We kindly ask that you stay with your bike if Recycle Cycles is repairing your bike.

You can book a DIY station or a Recycle Cycles repair by email or drop in and we’ll schedule it with you.

We also welcome volunteers! Send us an email or come in and we will schedule a conversation.

We will be opening again once the move to our new location is complete. Thank you for your understanding.
