EcoMatters runs two bike hubs in West Auckland: one at the Falls carpark in Henderson and the other at Olympic Park in New Lynn.
These bike hubs offer: free access to tools and advice on basic bike maintenance; used bikes for sale and loan; used and new bike parts and accessories.
They will help you learn how to do simple fixes and maintenance on your bike.
The bike hubs are also a good place to drop off unwanted bikes and parts (in reasonable condition).
See the EcoMatters website and the bike hubs Facebook group for opening times.
