Recycle-A-Bicycle is a community-based bike shop and non-profit organization that provides educational/job training programs and encourages environmental stewardship and everyday bicycle use. Through programs such as Earn-A-Bike, Ride Club, Cycle Craft, and Summer Youth Employment Program, RAB is dedicated to the health and well-being of NYC youth. In this past year alone, RAB has worked with more than 1,000 young people and collectively pedaled more than 10,000 miles.
On average, RAB salvages 1,200 bicycles each year from the waste stream, diverting a total of 36,000 pounds of waste from NYC’s landfills.
Recycle-A-Bicycle is pleased to announce the NY400 Batavus Bicycle Fleet. The NY400 Batavus bikes will be donated to Recycle-A-Bicycle by the Government of the Netherlands to create a public legacy. These comfortable orange bikes are available to rent from both Recycle-A-Bicycle locations. All proceeds will directly support RAB’s community-based programming for the NY400 Batavus fleet.
