1. We are an award winning bicycle business
When we first opened our doors, back in 2011, we won `Start up business of the year` at the Lowestoft & Waveney Chamber of Commerce awards, a year later we were runner up in Environmental Business of the year`
More recently we won `environmental business of the year for 2021` and were runners up in `growing business` and `best business`
2. We are independently owned and run.
CycleRecycle is an independently owned and run business. We have no shareholders to please. When our customers use our business they are supporting a locally run business that employs local people.
When you shop at Halfords you are just helping the CEO buy a faster Porsche.
3. We are the biggest second user bicycle business in the UK
CycleRecycle started from humble beginnings, but now has 2 stores (soon to be three) and in 2020 saved over 700 bicycles from landfill - for 2021 we are on target to save over 1000 bicycles from landfill. Read the EDP article below
4. We are cyclists
We understand what cyclists want because we are cyclists. Everyone who works at CycleRecycle will be entering into the Norwich 100 in 2022. We know which products you need, because they are the products we use.
5. We will save you money
Our second-hand stock grows by the hour, and if your bike needs a repair, or a specific part we can fit a perfectly working second hand part at a fraction of the cost of a new equivalent.
2 tyres and 2 new tubes fitted
Regular bike shop with new parts = £60 - £65 (depending on labour costs)
CycleRecycle price (2 upcycled tyres & 2 new tubes) = £30
6. Our 42 point service exceeds British standards
When you have your bicycle serviced at CycleRecycle we have an industry leading check sheet which all our staff members are trained to use.
We make over 42 checks and adjustments to your bike to make sure it is running smoothly, efficiently and safely. When you collect your bicycles we will run through the sheet with you so you know what we have done, and any advisories that we have noticed. We will also contact you in 12 months to remind you your service is due.
