is closing its shop at 75 Avenue C between Sixth Street and Fifth Street at the end of the month... the sign on the front door says that the community-based bike shop and nonprofit organization (they provide programming and workshops for kids) will reopen somewhere on the Lower East Side this summer...
No word at the moment why they are leaving Avenue C. Recycle-A-Bicycle launched in 1994.
Recycle-a-Bicycle was one of the businesses that began in CHARAS (former P.S. 64.) I wasn't aware they had a DUMBO location.
This is a shame, I purchased a single speed Atala here a few years ago and it has brought me so much joy. I actually would enjoy going to get an annual tuneup there, sad to see them go but excited to become a full on Landmark patron.
It is a shame; I've always had a good experience here. They will be missed; hopefully they don't move too far.
Sucks that it's closing, but why say "leaving the East Village"? Their current location is interchangeably called "LES" so it could easily just be in the same neighborhood.
