We’re all about getting more people cycling! Our Bike Hubs are friendly places where we welcome anyone, of any age and level of experience, who is interested in riding a bike.
- New Lynn – 1 Olympic Place, Thurs-Sun 10am-2pm.
- Glen Innes – Maybury Reserve (off Taniwha Street), Thurs-Sun 10am-2pm.
- Henderson – The Falls Carpark, Edmonton Road, Fri-Sun 10am-4pm.
What’s on offer
- free access to tools and advice on basic bike maintenance
- used bikes for sale and loan
- used and new bike parts and accessories
- safe cycling advice and guidance
- fun, novelty bikes to try
- free cycling maps, including Flat White Ride and Pedal Puketāpapa
We’re a community-based not-for-profit operation and our staff are ably assisted by enthusiastic volunteers. Our aim is to work alongside you to develop your skills and knowledge, so you can freely enjoy the benefits of cycling.
We don’t offer a certified mechanical repair service where you can drop your bike off to be fixed but we can point you in the right direction if this is a service you require.
Have a bike?
Bring it in for advice and support about maintenance and basic repairs. We have parts available to purchase, including replacement cables, tyre tubes, brake pads and chains.
Don’t have a bike (yet)?
We have a range of serviced low-cost used bikes for sale or loan, or can provide advice about where else you could find a bike to suit your needs. We can also offer advice and support if you haven’t ridden a bike in a while (or ever!)
Every time someone travels by bike, it’s potentially one less car journey and one more person staying active. Every used bike we rescue and refurbish keeps it out of landfill, putting it back in use, through loans or low cost purchase.
Bike Donations and Volunteers
As a registered charity, we happily accept donated bikes and parts in reasonable condition that we restore and sell at low cost to help fund our service. Donated bikes can be dropped off at any of our Bike Hub sites during opening hours. Unfortunately we do not have the resourcing capacity to collect donated bikes.
We also welcome volunteers. Get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in volunteering at any of our EcoMatters Bike Hubs.
Since our first Bike Hub opened in 2017, we’ve:
- had more than 12,000 visitors
- fixed more than 3,500 bikes
- benefitted from more than 3,000 hours of volunteer support.
1 Olympic Place, New Lynn
Open Thurs-Sun, 10am-2pm
New Lynn was our first Bike Hub, opening in April 2017, next to our EcoHub on the edge of Olympic Park, just off Wolverton Road. As well as taking advantage of our free Bike Hub services and facilities, you can also stock up on sustainable living essentials, drinks or snacks from our EcoMatters Store next door. There’s also 24 hour access to a community bike maintenance stand just in front of this Bike Hub.
Thank you to the Whau Local Board for supporting the Bike Hub @ New Lynn.
Maybury Reserve, Glen Innes
Open Thurs-Sun, 10am-2pm
Our newest Bike Hub, was opened after a hugely popular season of pop up Bike Fix events at Te Oro. You’ll find us in the Maybury Reserve, off Taniwha Street, near the intersection with Line Road.
Thanks to Tāmaki Regeneration, Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board and Auckland Transport for supporting the Bike Hub @ Glen Innes.
The Falls Carpark, 14 Edmonton Road
Open Fri-Sun, 10am-4pm
Located just off the popular Henderson Creek shared path, at 14 Edmonton Road, our second Bike Hub opened in November 2018. Our location in the Falls cafe car park means there’s often something fun happening right next door too, from markets to the pop up pump track which makes regular stop offs here.
Thank you to Panuku Development Auckland and the Henderson-Massey Local Board for supporting the Bike Hub @ Henderson.
