If you’re wondering what happens to all those cycle tyres that get a big, irreparably flat and get discarded almost before they’ve been ridden, then you’ll be happy to know that some of them find a second life in Cycled belts.

Handmade in Italy, they’re the ultimate green cycle accessory. Cycled cuts the tread away from the sidewalls. The treated section is then made into a belt, complete with the tyre’s logos.
