Thursday – Sunday 10am – 2pm
The EcoMatters Bike Hub @ New Lynn was our first Bike Hub and opened in April 2017. It’s a place to enable and support the community of west Auckland to experience the joy and fun of cycling. Prominently located next to the Environment Centre at Olympic Park – just off busy Wolverton Road – the EcoMatters Bike Hub is an exciting destination and focal point for Auckland riders.
The hub provides assistance with learning basic bike maintenance skills, like how to inflate tyres and repair punctures, configure your bike for optimal riding comfort, tune and adjust your brakes and gears, and how to maintain your chain. We are also rescuing bikes from the waste stream, giving them a new lease of life and recycling them back into the community at low or no cost.
The Bike Hub is a destination pitstop for cyclists – a place to stop in for a rest and a chat about cycling in Auckland.
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
- Free cycling maps, including our Flat White Ride
You’re welcome to bring your bike in and ask one of our staff for guidance. If you don’t have a bike yet, we can loan you a bike or help you refurbish a recovered bike.
We don’t offer a certified bike mechanical repair service where you drop your bike off to be repaired. There are great local bike shops that provide this service. Our aim is to work alongside you to develop your skills and knowledge so that you can freely enjoy the benefits of cycling.
DRINKS AND REFRESHMENTS
Riding and maintaining bikes can be great exercise. So why not pop into the EcoHub shop next door, where we offer a range of refreshments. Here you can enjoy a book or magazine from our eco library or relax with an organic Kо̄kako filter coffee, herbal tea or Nice Block ice cream.
The sale of these items helps us running our community restoration projects, so you’re basically doing a good deed while taking a break!
BIKE DONATIONS AND VOLUNTEERS
We happily receive donated bikes and parts in reasonable condition that we restore and sell at a low cost to help keep us going.
We also welcome volunteers. Get in touch by emailing [email protected] if you’re interested in volunteering with the EcoMatters Bike Hub.
