Collecting Recycled Bike Parts

Sarah collects bike parts
Thanks to the generous support of Our Community Bikes (OCB), Artist-in-Community Sarah Van Borek has been able to source recycled bike parts for use in the UpCYCLEd Stories project on nearly a weekly basis this fall. It does involve some digging, but it’s certainly worth the effort! Repeated scrounging through OCB’s recycle-destined steel parts helped Sarah discover what parts were more commonly discarded and therefore more readily available for the project: hubs, chains, tires, brake cables and pedals and some curious bits and bytes. Here is a photo gallery of sourcing bike parts in October 2015 (photo credits go to Adi Ornai):
