What is Recycle Cycling

Recycle cycling is not a movement. There will never be an infrastructure. There will never be a central collection point from which donations are distributed. My sister Jane summed recycle cycling best when she said, "You get exercise, Vermont raods are cleaner and someone benefits with a financial contribution to make their life a little bit better". That's it, something good for you, something good for something larger than yourself and something good for someone else. No telethon, no $100 a plate dinners, no tuxes or formal wear, no $100,000 in the till to change the world. Just one cyclist at a time, dismounting and mounting to chase a bottle or can then turn the litter of someone into an opportunity for someone else.
