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


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 in the 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 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. We sell each other's bikes and share the resources. So you can buy bikes and parts or donate whenever either organization is open, but volunteering and do-it-yourself repair is only during re-Cycles hours. Also, 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.
