A partnership of city stakeholders, including the Dunedin City Council (DCC), is planning a pilot bike library scheme at a school in South Dunedin. This bike library scheme entails the recycling and restoration of bikes donated by people in the community, for people in the community. The bike library scheme will make bikes available to children who have participated in the Dunedin City Council Cycle Skills Training Programme.
We are looking for donations of second-hand bikes. If you have a used bike in good condition sitting gathering dust in your garage, put it to good use again by donating it to the community bike library scheme pilot project. The following types of bikes are being sought:
Children's bikes which have gears (No bmx's please). To suit children between the ages of 8 – 12 years old i.e. wheel sizes should be between 20" (51cm) and 24" (61cm).
Adult bikes which have gears. All sizes.
Please do not donate second hand helmets as due to safety requirements, we will not be able to use these for the pilot project.
We can arrange pick-up of the bikes within the Dunedin area. Please email Rose Dovey (Dunedin Bike Library Pilot Project Manager) firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to donate a bike or if you have any questions.
