Recy’Clo Project offers a second life to electric bikes

Recy’Clo Project, from the La Poste group, offers a second life to former electric assistance (VAE) bikes from business fleet. These professional range bikes are collected and then reconditioned in integration workshops, before being sold on the second -hand market.

After an average of 5 years of use, electric bikes that belong to business fleets or communities arrive at the end of life. Faced with this observation, the recy’clo project of the La Poste group, launched in February 2020, began to recover and recondition these bikes with the same quality and security requirements as new bikes.

Promoting the circular economy, RECY’CLO Project sells the bikes repeated to communities, businesses or individuals at an advantageous rate.

“”We had in our postal establishment 8 bikes with electric assistance deemed non -repairable “ Indicates Justine Démimeur, Manager Work Organization of the Beaune-Ob-Office Services Platform-Currier.

“We had the choice of breakage or to give them a second life. We opted for the second option “.

In 2020, 150 bikes were sold at an average price of € 1,190. It is possible to customize your bike, by choosing a color, a name or adding options. From taking the order on delivery, a period of 1 month is then necessary.

Today, Recy’Clo Project is developing and opens, after Saint-Dié-des-Vosges, two other reconditioning workshops, in Strasbourg and Tours. The objective is to be able to revive 3,000 bikes by making them accessible, reassuring and reliable, with a triple environmental, societal and economic dimension. RECY’CLO Project is a structure incubated by the La Poste group, winner of its intraprenariat system. Since the end of December 2021, the young company has received an AFNOR certification attesting to the robustness, reparability and recyclability of its bikes.

Our goal is to act for ecological transition and contribute to more responsible and more ethical consumption methods by promoting the circular economy, re -use and short sectors. We also aspire to contribute to social and territorial cohesion and favor local integration workshops.
