re-Cycles is a not-for-profit bicycle recycling and DIY shop in Ottawa, Ontario.

We:

sell recycled bikes and parts at low cost.

accept donations of your unwanted bikes and parts , regardless of condition.

provide an equipped shop (and bike repair know-how on certain evenings) so that you can maintain and repair your own bike.

Unlike conventional bike shops we do not fix your bike for you! But if you want to do it yourself once the pandemic is over 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.

Please read our FAQ page before emailing us.

April 15, 2022: We now carry new locks and lights! The locks are the usual U-lock style, and we offer the basic lock and also the same one with additional loop cable. The lights are small, basic blink style. Not very good for trail riding, but they'll help you stay visible on city streets.

April 3, 2022: We are now on Spring/Summer hours. Please see our Location/Hours page. For now DIY bike repair is on Tuesday and Thursday evenings by online appointment only.

March 21, 2022: We are asking that you still wear a mask when visiting our shop. The staff you meet during our evenings are volunteers, and they've kept volunteering through this pandemic because they've felt it's reasonably safe to do so. We'd like to keep the feeling of safety for a little while yet, so please bear with us. Many thanks for your understanding.

Bikes are still for sale ONLY during evening hours and Saturday afternoons. Masks indoors are mandatory. You can also donate bikes and parts to us any time we are open, evenings or afternoons.
