Many schools in the country are embracing the opportunity to become a cycling school complete with track and 50 cycles in a neat on-site container.
Biketec is ideally set up to maintain these fleets. We recognise the particular needs and problems that schools with large fleets of cycles encounter, so we've designed a maintenance contract that ensures that your cycles will stay safe and working well all year round.
Biketec was set up as a mobile service with workshops in strategic places - we come to you throughout the year to keep your cycles fit for purpose.
How it works...
We offer several options regarding maintenance of your cycles.
Please click here to view the full list of options available however we highly recommend the full service, as it will ensure that your cycles are kept in the best possible condition all year round with the peace of mind that you can call us out when you need us at no extra charge!
We give you total peace of mind for your Schools investment, and we guarantee the best service possible. All work done on site unless the situation requires us to remove the machine to our workshops.
We would love to keep your School cycling! Contact us now to discuss!
We build and maintain bikes for young people to access riding for exercise sport and fun, and through it we hope to improve young peoples lives and experiences.
Biketec is all about maintaining cycles for young people. We do this in several different ways; we operate mainly with and through Primary Schools and our work is fixing and maintaining young people's cycles so that they have a good and lasting, fun and engaging experience of cycling. We are all trained cycle mechanics and cycle skills instructors, training young people to ride safely, maintain their bike, and discover the healthy lifestyle of cycling.
We believe that every child in NZ should have access to a safe working cycle.
For some of the kids in the schools we visit, this will be the first time they've had the chance to ride a decent bike or been able to use their own cycle in good working condition and they love it! Our dream is to give them and all young people the opportunity to enjoy the experience and benefits of cycling, by actively assisting the Schools and participating Councils to promote the use and ownership of a cycle for every student in the School by either fixing School cycles or Student owned cycles and by passing on donated/used cycles to the Schools after we have refurbished them.
Biketec has been providing a professional Cycle mechanic service to Schools for nearly a decade, the business came directly out of a youth Trust provider service with 100% youth worker background. We are fully trained cycle mechanics and all staff are police-checked. We are also a fully re-recyclable service meaning that we recycle everything. We often provide full fleets of re-cycled cycles to your school whilst you build up the funds for your own purchase of a fleet, and we can often do that for free!
Schools all over New Zealand are equipping themselves with their own cycle fleet, and now Biketec can offer them a comprehensive and affordable service maintenance contract to take care of their cycle fleet so that it is always ready to use and maintained to the highest standards. The maintenance is just one very affordable yearly cost.
What really makes Biketec great is our awesome team with over 40 years of bike maintenance experience, and qualifications in Bike Repairs, training, racing and Simon's 18 years of full time work in the NZ youth sector we don't know of any other fully mobile youth cycle maintenance team in the country better equipped to provide all of your School cycle maintenance needs, from helpful advice choosing your initial options to maintaining your whole fleet of cycles we can keep you on your bikes!
