ReCycled Rides bicycle library
Epuni Primary School bike shed
ReCycled Rides is a community bike library offering rescued, fixed-up bikes to Epuni and the wider Hutt Valley community.
ReCycled Rides takes bikes destined for landfill and refurbishes them for loan to the students of Epuni School, or anyone else nearby who wants to ride a bike! Borrowers are encouraged to koha back to us by gifting an hour of their time to any of our initiatives at Epuni, like the Unity Garden, Koha Kitchen, One Small Piece knitting project, or the Sew Good sewing cooperative. Or perhaps you have some other skills to share? We recognise that everyone has something to offer in return for the loan of a bike.
We’ve built a bike track at Epuni School for the free use of our community and in school holidays we explore our neighbourhood on family bike rides.
Check out the ReCycled Rides Facebook page for updates and the latest news.
Please join us! Together, we ride.
Donnell is our Bike Librarian, who repairs, maintains and manages the collection of bikes in our bicycle library.
She is a qualified Pedal Ready National Cycle Skills Instructor, who is available to teach bike riding, safety and maintenance.
How can you help?
We welcome donations of bikes in all sizes, so long as they are in good working condition. If you are unsure, please contact us to discuss our currents needs and the suitability of bikes you’d like to donate. Good quality helmets and accessories are also welcomed.
