As a community bicycle shop Recycle Cycles’ focus is on promoting cycling by making bicycle purchase, maintenance and repair accessible and affordable.
Members of the public can reserve bicycle repair stand space and make use of our tools and volunteer assistance to repair their bikes. Recycle Cycles volunteers will not fix your bicycle for you, but they will service it with you. Use of the shop and volunteer assistance is free.
Recycle Cycles volunteers work with members of the public to provide what ever level of assistance is required to repair their bicycles. Volunteers also work on refurbishing bicycles donated to us, which are then sold to help support our free services. In 2013, Recycle Cycles volunteers worked on 5,990 bicycles.
We accept donations of bicycles, parts and accessories any time during our open hours.
In addition to our shop operations, Recycle Cycles also partners with community centres and other organizations for community events which bring our skills directly to kids and adults throughout Kitchener and Waterloo.
