Bike maintenance workshops

Note: “Cycling in Christchurch” does NOT provide, receive or service bicycles – we are just an information site. Contact the providers below


The ICECycles (Inner City East Cycles) are a group of volunteers who run free bike maintenance workshops in the Linwood/Richmond region approximately four times a year. Come along get your tyres pumped, chain oiled, bearings un-seized, gears tweaked, wheels unbent. They will also show you some basic bike maintenance skills as well!

Got any unwanted bikes, parts or helmets?

ICEcycles will collect and restore them and then pass them on to a good home. Contact details below.
