Recycling Cycles

Ever wondered what happens to old bikes and bike bits? Apparently, in these eco-conscious times, there are lots of people out there thinking up creative ways of making use of old bike bits.

Here're a few of my favourites. (Click on the photo to go to the original site).

Jewellery:



Bike Chain and Spoke Bracelet



Cable and Bike Chain Bracelet



Cuff "Links"

Household Stuff:



Bike Chain Lamps



Bike Tube Shelving System



Bike Tube Rug



Lounge Chair



Wheel Mirror



Side Table



Wheel Pot Rack



Wheel Clock

Bits and Bobs:



Cassette Clock



Chainring Pendulum Clock



Candle Holder



Tea Light Holder



Tyre Belt

But my favourites are these two projects where someone was really thinking big:



Bike Windmill - using old clean transport to make new clean power.



Bike Christmas Tree. This was done in London to promote cycling.
