Biketec is all about maintaining cycles for young people.
Keeping your bikes well serviced significantly extends their useful life span and gives you piece of mind about the equipment that your students use.

Biketec has been working in schools across the Wellington Region for 12 years, teaching bike related courses of all types, from how to ride at the primary level, through to bike mechanic Gateway Workforce Transition programmes at secondary schools.
Biketec contracts to Hutt City Council to enable cycling programmes in many local schools, and works closely with Healthy Families Hutt Valley to assist community cycling hubs increase the number of opportunities for engagement with cyclists in the Hutt Valley. We maintain the cycle fleets of a number of local schools, and deliver bike fix-up workshops in partnership with local councils.
Biketec was formed specifically with Youth Work Aotearoa standards at its heart as it evolved directly from a successful youth work initiative. Recently our focus has been on engaging high school students with the increasingly popular recreational sport of mountain biking.
We emphasise the “fun” and "play” aspects of the activity and the ultimate outcome is to introduce this popular cycling activity to a whole range of young people who may not otherwise have the opportunity to try it, engaging many who do not already participate in school sports or physical activities.
We introduce students to an active recreation and hope to foster a passion that will last a lifetime.
