provide an equipped shop (and bike repair know-how in the evenings) so that you can maintain and repair your own bike. COVID-19 Note: we currently cannot offer this service!

Unlike conventional bike shops we do not fix your bike for you! But if you want to do it yourself there's always staff on hand during our evening hours to guide you if needed. Please note that there is no assisted DIY repair at any time during the day (either with us or our shop-mates Cycle Salvation).

Please read our FAQ page before emailing us.

We are co-located with Cycle Salvation. Please note that re-Cycles does not have a phone. Cycle Salvation does, but it's for their business, not ours, so please do not phone them to ask questions about re-Cycles. Thanks.

11/1/20 - New schedule for November:

re-Cycles will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm-8pm. We will be closed for sales on Wednesdays but still accepting donations between 6-9pm.

Now that it's getting colder we are moving bike sales indoors! People can shop for bikes on a first-come, first-served basis. Only one person (or two people from the same household) will be allowed in the shop at a time.

Customers must wear a mask indoors. If you can't wear one, we'll serve you outside. Staff will bring you bikes to look at and try out. Payment for bikes is cash or e-transfer. We'll continue to sell parts at the parts window until further notice. Payment for parts is cash only.

Unfortunately, we still can't offer do-it-yourself bike repair services. We also don't fix bikes for people. Thanks to all of you for your continued support during these difficult times, and a special thanks to our staff and volunteers who continue to make it all possible!

As always, we'll happily accept donations of bikes and bike parts in any condition. Please see Donating to re-Cycles

Seasonal shutdown

re-Cycles will begin our seasonal shutdown on December 1st, which means that our LAST DAY OF BIKE AND PARTS SALES FOR 2020 will be NOVEMBER 26th. So if you're thinking of buying a bike, come visit before we hibernate!
