Community Bike Project

The Ōtaki College bike project is starting. This is a partnership between Otaki College, the Menz Shed and Energise Ōtaki.

Troy Harris, Xavier Wickliffe and Rereheu Grennell are working with Tony Evans and Valdis Plato from the Menz Shed to 'do up' some bikes for the community to use.

We have kindly been donated some bikes and our aim is for each student to refurbish up to two bikes each by the end of the year.

Energy Ōtaki has obtained some funding from the World Wildlife Fund to help us start off, by getting some tools for the work on the bikes. Colin, our caretaker, has worked hard to clear one of his sheds for us to use as our 'bike shed'. Mr Georgetti is helping manage the project.

We will keep you updated on our progress.
