The Roskill Bike Kitchen is an exciting new community initiative. The friendly and knowledgeable team of mechanics from the Bike Kitchen, are passionate about creating climate action through bikes not cars, repairing and res-using broken or unwanted bikes, and giving people the skills to fix their bikes and get riding! 

Roskill’s Bike Kitchen is currently led by PATH and supported by Global Hope Missions, Auckland Transport, and the Puketāpapa Local Board. It brings the beloved Bikes for Refugees programme to a new home in Mt Roskill/ Puketāpapa – and combines forces with an existing programme at Roskill Youth Zone, whose bike workshops for youth will continue alongside the new monthly Bike Kitchen Fix-It sessions. See below for details:

There are many ways to get involved and there’s no such thing as too many cooks at the Bike Kitchen – in fact, you might say “many hands make a bike work!”
