UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 21, 2020 — Cycle Re-Cyle's workshops are currently on hold due to restrictions related to COVID-19. However, it is still accepting donations between 12–5pm on Saturdays. Stay updated on workshop hours by following its Facebook page here.
Waterloo's Cycle Re-Cycle (aka The Nunnery Bike Workshop) is so much more than just a bike shop. Run by a group of local cycling enthusiasts, the shop accepts donations of used and abandoned bicycles (as well as spare parts), then fixes 'em up and puts them to good use in the community. The volunteers work alongside community members to share mechanical knowledge, with the ultimate goal to increase bicycle use in Sydney. Workshops happen on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5–8pm. If you're willing to fix up a bike yourself, you may even be able to nab a freebie.
