History

Recyclistas beginnings coincided with a growing community bicycle movement in North America that drew inspiration from the international Bikes Not Bombs organization. Bikes Not Bombs was originally dedicated to providing sustainable, human-powered transportation to communities in developing countries by setting up in those countries local community bicycle maintenance spaces and training local bike mechanics. Similar needs were identified within the US & Canada and community bicycle education organizations emerged in larger inner cities.
