Bike community

New Plymouth district has fantastic bike shops, bike clubs, a cycle advocacy group and the New Plymouth Bike Kitchen.

New Plymouth Bike Kitchen

The New Plymouth Bike Kitchen is a bicycle workshop run by volunteers to help you to maintain and fix your bicycle. The volunteer bike mechanics give their time to help you:

  • fix something broken
  • to learn and do it yourself
  • build something new

The Bike Kitchen provides tools and mechanical expertise in a safe and inclusive space that is open to the public twice a week. They have a stock of free used parts available for you to re-use on your bike project. Any bikes donated to Bike Kitchen will be repaired, maintained and passed on for koha.

Location: The Metro Plaza Devon St (just in behind FitFresh)

Hours: Wednesdays 5.30pm - 7pm and Saturdays 10am – 12pm

Cost: Koha/donations are gratefully received and go towards the running of the Bike Kitchen, there is no cost for time, the workshop space or used parts
