Who is Recycled Cycles?
So who is Recycled Cycles? We are you! We are commuters, mountain bikers, road bikers, bmx'ers, weekend warriors. We pull our kids in trailers, go on group rides, race, and cruise casually through the neighborhood. We are here because we love bicycles, we love the feeling you get when you cruise down the path, we love the smells that come from the gardens, kitchens, and fields of Fort Collins. We love the fact that cycling even an hour a week can make you a happier and healthier person!
So what does Recycled Cycles do?
Recycled Cycles has been reconditioning used bicycles and fitness since 1978. We sell new and used bicycles, fitness equipment, accessories, and parts. We offer repair services for bikes of all makes and models as well as fitness equipment. We are here to get every man, woman and child that wants to ride a bike on the road!
Our motto? ROLL ON!
Stay Young, Ride a Bike
Congrats to Christopher Blair for his submission in our “Stay Young, Ride a Bike” $200 Gift Card Giveaway. Christopher gave us this very heartfelt submission!
“Riding my cruiser reminds me of my late grandfather and seeing pictures of him and my grandmother riding their bikes through the streets of Kingsley Iowa. One of the reasons I bought a cruiser was to enjoy riding as much as he did in those pictures. Life is always easier and more calm on a cruiser! If only I could find a wood panel one made for ex football players.”
A Little R & R Before the Big Event Is A Good Thing - One common mistake cyclists make is not getting enough rest before a big event. Often we go into the week before our big century ride or race feeling like we need more training. All the training and preparation for a big event, however, should happen in the months and weeks preceding the event. It takes time for your body to recover from training and build on the hard work that you've put in. So, the week leading up to the event should be a week of light training to total rest that allows your body time to recover fully. Rest will allow your body's energy stores to replenish and allow the muscle trauma that occurs during training to repair itself. Eat smart as well, with an emphasis on complex carbohydrates, and you'll be ready to do your best. Check with us for more information on training and nutrition.
