Hi! We have two classes scheduled–both starting in 2017.
Sign up for a class here!
January 8th & 15th

Our two-part bicycle tune-up classes are taught by Tzippy. This class will introduce you to basic bicycle maintenance. We’ll cover tool and component terminology, fixing a flat, chain maintenance, brake pad replacement, and basic shifting adjustments. We’ll also provide some tips for getting through the winter! Costs $75 or $95 with shirt and poster.

It’s that time of year again. Our spooky bike-o-spider is proudly guarding the shop window, and piles of golden leaves are swarming in through the back door. As the seasons change, we need a strong tailwind to push us through the rest of the year.
This Halloween, we’re launching second annual Tailwind for Tools fundraiser. This holiday might be spooky, but it’s also about sharing. Thus, we encourage you to share with us as well.

The Recyclery Collective is an educational bike shop that promotes sustainability by giving access to tools, skills and opportunities for collaboration.
We envision a diverse, resilient neighborhood filled with knowledgeable, self-reliant cyclists.
Collaboration: We create opportunities for people of all backgrounds to work, share, and learn together to support a practical form of transportation.
Social Justice: We provide tools and resources to empower underserved populations and nurture community leaders.
Ecological Sustainability: We encourage the mindful use of resources and promote cycling as a part of building more resilient communities.
Celebrating Everything We Do: We like to have fun while working hard to make bicycles and mechanics accessible.
The Recyclery is a 501c3 non-profit. All major decisions are made by a quorum of collective members at a twice-a-month meeting. Decisions are made by consensus and the collective is open to anyone willing to put in the time and effort to fulfill collective entry requirements. A few staff members are paid for administrative tasks, fixing bikes for sale, and teaching classes. Regular volunteers fix bikes that we give away and help during Open Shop.
The Recyclery is grateful for all the support we receive from the wider community. We’d especially like to thank the Evanston Bicycle Club, Evanston Community Foundation, Reba Place Fellowship, and all of our bike-loving friends:
