RE:CYCLE (bike hire)

Get involved in the alternative - a student-led bike hire cooperative

Launched in September 2013, RE:CYCLE Sussex Bike Co-Op is a student-led co-operative that recycles the bikes abandoned on campus. We rent bikes to students and staff for a not-for-profit price. Beat the bus, sign up now to reserve your wheels!

Our mission for grassroots, sustainable travel:

To bring cycling to Sussex University campus: reducing landfill by recycling abandoned bikes for students. We bring  bicycles abandoned on our campus back in tiptop shap,e to hire our to Sussex staff and students for a friendly price. We want to reduce emissions, landfill, transport monopoly, stimulate self-sufficiency, co-operation, healthy living, safe cycling infrastructure, and most of all spread the joy of cycling!

We don’t need more cyclists. What we need are more people that ride bikes. 


We are part of Sussex In Tranition, watch this video to learn more.
