Mission Statement whangarei's open cycle space


Whare bike liberates bicycles from garages and sheds throughout northland, and provides an open space where people may come to bring these marvels back to life and empower themselves. reaching out to those who need it most, our space has been formed through donations of materials and time by a diverse community of supporters, with most open nights seeing at least a couple of happy new riders taking to the streets and the hills and the stars.

our history

we are a nascent power in whangarei, a small city of 50,000, who have arisen through experiences with the wonderful bicycle spaces of wien, austria; the actions of a dedicated local cycling community; and the willingness of people throughout the city to engage with, and embrace our presence.

we occupy an otherwise unused warehouse space which also houses the local circus jam crew; a wholefood hub; cuddle cinema; workshop spaces; growing library; and community garden.
