The Bikes in Schools project - the most exciting activity to hit schools around NZ.

Many schools in the country are embracing the opportunity to become a cycling school complete with track and fifty cycles in a neat on-site container.

 

Biketec is ideally set up to maintain these fleets. We recognize 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.

About Us

​​
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. 

 

Our services

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! 

With the assistance of local Councils we repair children's bikes in Schools whilst the student is in class. The student then gets a fully fixed and serviced cycle at the end of the School day, which has been proven to increase their use of the cycle. We also run Maintenance classes to teach students how to maintain and fix their own bikes.

Repairs

We want young people to enjoy all the lifelong benefits of cycling. Part of this is staying safe on NZ roads, so to do this we team up with the National Bike Ready program to deliver cycle safety training in Schools. Biketec also teaches young people mountain bike skills classes for those who want to go off road and get out into the great NZ outdoors.
