Revolve ReCYCLING aims to recycle and redeploy Australia’s bikes, e-bikes, scooters and other Personal Transport Vehicles (PTVs).
We are determined to divert old rides from landfill and give them new life. That means stimulating a market for redeployed rides, giving people access to high-quality, safe and affordable rides, creating jobs for people with disadvantaged backgrounds and encouraging cycling and active transport. Its sustainability on wheels!

|Abdul joined us – after a 4 year break for medical reasons – as route planner to organise our weekly bike collection runs. He brings his previous experience as planner and his route familiarity as a local resident which gives us the confidence that our bike collection program is in good hands.|

Sienna and Josh are an awesome combo in our WheelShop.
Josh, who is a big supporter of community-based cycling initiatives, is one of our part-time mechanics. You always know when Josh is the in the shop because the smiles abound.
Sienna has general duties around the WheelShop and is super interested in and getting to know the tools really well. It’s great she’s got an opportunity for learning and development with us.
Gustavo, originally from Latin America, is helping us get well organised on the admin side and working in customer liaison. He’s the guy who has the ’free coffee’ cards for when you drop off your bike at the WheelShop in Alexandria.
