Cyclo trains more than just their employees. From February to March, every Thursday night, they run workshops where you can learn more about working on your own bike. If you simply need tools and/or a place to work on your ride, they do that too. All they ask in return is 1/4 of your time to help around shop.
Does your current bike need sprucing up? Bring it in and they’ll set it right at just 36 Euros/hr. You’ll find them on the web at www.recyclo.org and at rue de Flandre 85, 1000 Brussels, or you can call them at 02 513 95 55.
If you’ve got an old bike you’d like to donate, they’ll gladly take it in, providing it’s a decent brand and not a ‘supermarket special’.
If you’re looking for the perfect bike but don’t want to consume all the energy and materials that go into manufacturing a bike by buying new, Cyclo has the answer! For between 150 and 200 Euros you get a professionaly re-built unit using new parts where necessary and quality used pieces for the rest. Even better, you get a cleaner conscious and the knowledge you’re helping get people back into gear.
