Mission Statement

The Recyclery Collective is an educational bike shop that promotes sustainability by giving access to tools, skills and opportunities for collaboration.

Our Vision: We envision a diverse, resilient neighborhood filled with knowledgeable, self-reliant cyclists.

Description

The Recyclery Collective is an educational bike shop. Major decisions are made by a collective that meets twice a month. Recyclery volunteers have the satisfaction transforming used bikes into a sustainable form of transportation for those in need. We get to work with youth, promote cycling, and have a positive impact on the neighborhood. We also share mechanic skills and learn together. We carry out our mission through a variety of programs:

  • Open Shop: Use our tools to fix your own bike with the instruction of Recyclery mechanics. We strive to provide an open, respectful and collaborative atmosphere free of mechanical elitism.
  • FreeCyclery and Volunteer Hours: We donate bicycles to refugees, people experiencing homelessness, and low-income families.
  • Youth Classes: We teach youth bicycle maintenance, riding safety, environmental awareness, and work ethics.
  • Overhaul & Tune-Up Classes: We provide bike mechanics classes for adults.
  • Saturday Bike Sales: We sell bicycles every Saturday morning. Your purchase keeps a used bike running and funds our educational programs.
