Get your bike back in shape!

Is your old bike not running as well as you think it should (nothing to do with the rider of course)?

Or perhaps, one of the family has had a bike sitting around for a while and not being used?

Or maybe, you’re a reasonably keen cyclist and you’d like to make some fine adjustments, but not quite sure what?

Well, the Greasy Chain Charitable Trust in conjunction with Evo Cycles bike service, are offering free bike check-ups – dates to be confirmed.

Come on down to … at the end of Albert Street on (date and place to be confirmed)

On your bike!

In case you haven’t heard, February is NZ Cycling Month with the aim of getting more people on bikes. So, if you’ve been thinking about that New Year’s resolution to get a little fitter, but haven’t done anything yet, now’s the time to get on your bike!

Start out by taking the family for a leisurely ride along the beautiful riverbank pathway on one of these glorious, long summer evenings.

Or if you’re a little more serious, set yourself a goal of the number of days or number of kms you’ll ride during Feb. Log these on and be in the draw to win some great prizes.

Join the Aotearoa Bike Challenge! Happening throughout February.

/This is a fun way to get a little fitter during Feb. – Take the Aotearoa Bike Challenge – log on to  and set your targets – whatever suits you – days to ride/KMs to ride – and check your progress.

You might decide to ride to work or to school or with the family around the block or along the beautiful riverbank pathway – all up to you. Get fitter and be in the draw to win some great prizes.

And when you become a Greasy Chainer, Look out for the special prizes and great discounts from our sponsors when you participate in the Aotearoa Bike Challenge during February.

Are you up for the Wednesday Challenge?

The Greasy Chain Charitable Trust is promoting a new initiative, the Wednesday Challenge. Piloted in Tauranga in 2022, the Wednesday Challenge is now moving into towns and cities across New Zealand. The challenge is to have as many people as possible ride or walk to work/school on a Wednesday each week, thus getting people starting a habit of being more active – in our case cycling. You’re encouraged to log your rides (or walks) on an app to keep a track of progress. It’s been found that the best results come when people take the challenge in groups, such as from one firm, business or even school, so how about your group or organisation starting the Wednesday Challenge?

You can see more details of the Wednesday Challenge here: .
