ReBicycle Bike Rodeo

$2,750 goal
No pledges
Created 5 years ago

The ReBicycle team want to take our bike library and skills course on the road! To do that we need a trailer. Help us hit the streets.

Wellington

ReBicycle has built up a library of kids bikes and has funding from WCC for a skills/obstacle course. We have grand plans for these resources - the 'Bike Rodeo' - but we need your help!

We want to take them to community events, fairs and festivals, schools and parks. We want to give every kid in Wellington a chance to learn to ride a bike, or have fun on one, building their skills, fitness, confidence and sense of adventure.

To do this, we need a bike trailer. We have a unique opportunity (through a combination of generous supporters) to purchase a trailer and get it kitted out for the 'Bike Rodeo' - but we have to raise $2750 by Christmas.

We've got an amazing team of volunteers helping us along the way, and know that lots of you would love to help if you had the time or mechanical skills, so we've got a unique ask of you:

Can you give us an hour of your time?

Not an actual hour, but what you'd earn in an hour.

We know December is a busy time, so we don't want to commit you to a movie fundraiser or a quiz night, or ask you to sell sausages or raffle tickets on our behalf. Instead, we're asking for an $hour$. What do you think?

We hope that you can spare an hour of your time to help us make our goal of giving every kid in Wellington a chance to ride a bike a reality!

ReBicycle Charitable Trust's involvement (page creator)

ReBicycle is a new community organisation which ‘upcycles’ donated second-hand bikes into safe, practical commuter bikes to gift or loan to people who need them, starting with newly settled refugees in the Wellington region and low income families.

It's a community-led initiative preventing useful resources ending up in the landfill, reducing carbon emissions and enabling free healthy transport options. All bikes are donated or cheaply sourced, parts are donated or bought, and mechanics volunteer their time where possible.

Our bike library is currently available to schools and organisations doing cycle skills through Pedal Ready, but we'd like to make it more widely accessible with a bike trailer for transport.

About us

ReBicycle has re-homed over 1000 donated and repaired bikes in the Wellington region

We also create opportunities for tamariki from all backgrounds to learn and challenge themselves on bikes.
