About Us

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!

Guido Verbist is our General Manager. Whilst at the helm of the Bower Reuse and Repair Centres, he introduced Repair Cafés, the “Right to Repair” movement, and Tiny House building courses in Australia. Before that, Guido managed Greenpeace International Actions and Operations department and the Asia Pacific branch of the UK-based Security and Risk Mitigation company AKE.

Pete Shmigel is founder of Revolve ReCYCLING. He was previously CEO of Australian Council of Recyclers and Lifeline Australia. 

Sarah Baker as Operations Manager and Liam Robertson as Bike Mechanic are the heart of the organisation.

Sarah is a Certified Bicycle Mechanic and Educator with 14 years of experience spanning all aspects of the industry. Sarah has worked for eight different bike shops across Sydney. From commuters to racing bikes, mountain biking, touring, cargo, family bikes, electric, and even frame building. There’s no aspect of bicycle care that she doesn’t have hands-on experience with. Her passion for cycling, mechanics, and maintenance education stretches beyond the retail environment. She is a big believer in active transport.

Liam is a rising star in Sydney bikes. He’s been on the tools for 5 years at great shops like Omafiets before. He is totally Mr Fix-it whether it’s on our bikes or on the vintage cars he’s into. He has an art degree and an interest in combining working on the bikes with teaching. Liam is also our lead facilitator for our educational workshops.  We’re really pleased to be supporting Liam to get a Cert 3 in bicycle mechanics because we want our industry to progress to the highest professionalism.

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.

Anthony joined our sales team. He’s unable to work full time for health reasons and was looking for a way to make a contribution. He appreciated the concept behind Revolve ReCYCLING and approached us for some work. He’s worked in bicycle stores building and repairing bikes as well as riding Freestyle BMX.

Hashim joined us as driver for our ever growing bike collection program. Hashim is a goldsmith and jewelry designer by trade but escaped Sadam Hussein’s Iraq 20 years ago and after a few years waiting in Syria he was granted asylum in Australia.
