EcoMatters Bike Hubs

We’re all about getting more people cycling! Our Bike Hubs are friendly places where we welcome anyone who is interested in riding a bike. Find out where our existing hubs are and what’s opening soon.

What’s on offer

We provide:

  • free access to tools and advice on basic bike maintenance
  • restored and safety-checked second-hand bikes for sale
  • used and new bike parts and accessories
  • safe cycling advice and guidance

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.

Got 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 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).

Bike Donations

We welcome 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 our Bike Hubs during open hours. Unfortunately we don’t have the capacity to collect donated bikes.


Celebrating Success

Since our first Bike Hub opened in 2017, we’ve:

  • had more than 50,000 visitors
  • fixed more than 17,000 bikes
  • benefitted from more than 9,000 hours of volunteer support.

AWARDS

Together with our friends from Auckland Transport, we won the 2023 Trafinz National Sustainability Leadership award.

The Bike Hubs also won the Shifting the Dial category in the On the Go Awards 2021 and the Superior Grassroots Action category in the Travelwise Choices Awards 2020.
