We have several upcoming events!
Justice on Wheels
Saturday, July 25th
The Recyclery Collective and Circles & Ciphers are coming together to put on a restorative justice-themed bike ride. We’ll be raising funds for youth programming at The Recyclery in Chicago and BYKE in Baltimore. These three organizations share common goals of fostering safe community spaces and empowering youth through leadership opportunities.
It is a youth-focused event, but open to all cyclists. Children under the age of 11 must be accompanied by an adult. If you aren’t able to attend the ride, consider donating to support our youth programming! The suggested amount for donation or sponsorship is $20-$200. Please register to ride, and/or sponsor the ride below!
Support the ride:

Dixon’s Violin is coming to Chicago and playing a benefit concert for The Recyclery! Based on his classically-trained violin mastery, Dixon improvises on a 5-string electric violin with a looper to create an all-live one-man symphony. Guided by his remarkable personal story of life transformation, he shows the beauty of doing something seemingly impossible. Dixon’s passionate energy will enchant, mesmerize, and inspire you!
