Ōtaki Bike Space
Te Wāhi Pahikara o Ōtaki

Heading towards carbon neutral, by bike. 

Have a bike to pass on, or want one? 

Since 2017 we've revamped your donated bikes and given them away.

Why? Biking (not driving) local trips of just 2-3km can cut Ōtaki's transport emissions by 40%. 

And save energy. And reduce waste. And boost people power! 

It's a win-win. (A spin-spin.) 

  • When is the next Great Bike Giveaway and Fix-it Session?
    Please stand by, caller. The next Giveaway will be early November. Details as they emerge! Meanwhile, here are photos from our last Great Bike Giveaway and Repair Day.
  • When is your next repair session for volunteers?
    Here are the dates for 2024! We welcome all volunteers - no bike or bike fixing experience necessary. Interested? Please email Kirsty at otakibikespace@gmail.com, who can share location and timing details. Saturday, 22nd June Saturday, 20th July Saturday, 24th August Saturday, 28th September Saturday, 2nd November - Community Repair and Giveaway Day - TBC
  • Can anyone get a bike? Is it free?
    Yes! Koha is appreciated.
  • Do you want my bike? Where can I drop it off?
    Is your bike in pretty good condition? Needing no or only minor repairs? Then yes please. You can bring your bike/s to Energise Ōtaki's office between 10am-2pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. Or if that's not possible, email Kirsty to arrange a pick-up.
  • I'm not sure if my bike is in good enough condition. How do I find out?
    If you think your bike might need more than a minor repair, please send us a photo or a description of it. That will help determine if it is worth repairing salvaging for parts or sending to recycling.
  • Do I have to know how to repair bikes to volunteer?
    No! There's a job for everyone.

Volunteer

Energise Ōtaki runs on people power.

We welcome volunteers across all our projects. Please join us!
