The Bike Kitchen is Auckland's full-service community bike programme, born out of a need for better transport in Auckland’s Puketapapa area. It was not only created as a place to service the bikes of locals, it was also created for the needs of newly resettled former refugees in Auckland's Puketpapa / Mt Roskill area.
The Bike Kitchen is a full-service community bike shop.
This project brings the beloved Bikes for Refugees programme to a new home in Mt Roskill/Puketāpapa – and combines forces with Roskill Youth Zone.
The Bike Kitchen is currently led by Puketāpapa Active Transport Haven (PATH) with the support of Puketāpapa Local Board, Earth action, Puketāpapa Active Transport Haven (PATH), Auckland Transport, and Bikes for Refugees.
Any profits raised by the Bike Kitchen are used to fund ongoing work with Bikes for Refugees. You’ll find the permanent Bike Kitchen container located on the grounds of Roskill Youth Zone, 740 Sandringham Rd Extn, Mt Roskill, Auckland. There are many ways to get involved. There’s no such thing as too many cooks at the Bike Kitchen – in fact, you might say “many hands make a bike work!”
The Bike Kitchen also offers bike leasing and hire, as well as guided bike tours around Auckland.
