Ōtaki Bike Space

Gifting and repairing bikes in the community

Since 2017, the Ōtaki Bike Space has been accepting pre-loved bikes from the community, repairing them and re-gifting them.  One idea is children can swap out their bikes as they grow. 

The Ōtaki Bike Space is a container soon to be located at the Ōtaki Skate park where we can run bicycle repair workshops, cycle-based events and gift bikes from.

Volunteers donate their time to fix bikes, teach simple repairs, and Road Safety Skills.
