ReCycledride is a Toronto-based bicycle upcycling company that mixes and matches vintage and contemporary bike parts to create one-of-a-kind styles.

Each reCycledride bike is custom designed and christened with a unique name.  The brand’s recent Pennington model, for example, is made from a 1970s Miele frame, refurbished leather saddle, new handlebars, gold detailing and a gold chain.  The From Paris, With Love features a 1980s Raleigh frame, a Brooks B17 Champion Standard saddle and new wheels, cog, handlebar grip and Continental tires.
