This coming Sunday (28th June 2020) will be a planning and induction day. Please note this is NOT a business as usual Sunday Session.
We’ll be preparing to ensure the processes are in place so we can all socially distance and still provide the same friendly assistance we always do. We’ll be working on a shed cleanup and generally having the site ready.
We will also be running an induction for any new volunteers who would like to be involved. You don’t need to be an expert (we’re certainly not). If you have a Sunday free from time to time and want to see more people riding bikes then you’re qualified.
If that’s you we’d love to see you on Sunday. If you’d like to volunteer and can’t make Sunday just let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
HBK Reopening with a standard Sunday Session will be 5th July if all goes to plan.
Our intention is to hold a Sunday Session, or some other activity, every weekend.
NB we are going to ride our bikes in Jan. 2020 so our next session will be 2/2/2020
So how do you know what we’re doing? It’s easy – check the Upcoming Sessions widget on the left hand side of the page. The event will have the date/time and location of what we’re doing and any other info. which might be useful.
In support of social distancing measures and recognising the need to protect vulnerable groups in our community from the corona-virus (COVID-19) situation, we have decided to prioritise the health and safety of our volunteers, you (our valued community)and employees of the Tas Health sector and close the doors of the Hobart Bike Kitchen workshop until things improve.
We fully appreciate that bikes will play a vitally important part in how we move through these immediate challenges and rise to respond to climate change as well and we will post here as soon as we’re ready run our next Sunday session.
Stay safe, look after your bikes and each other in these challenging times
Be the best version of yourselves and practice generosity and compassion wherever you can.
Look forward to seeing you all for our grand re-opening party!
This piece from @Chris_Boardman is brilliant in it’s thoughtful, considered, undeniable simplicity.
Why any major city doesn’t do this is quite beyond me; for a very small public spend, the economic & social benefits are off the scale.
Thanks to @inthewoodshed
Well it’s an immersive cultural experience. A warm and friendly place to connect with people, great music, performance, art being created LIVE! plus bike recycling/repair, organic veggies.
The wonderful people at Kick Start Arts are developing Musiq Garden where you’ll have the opportunity to be part of your community and enjoy live music, art , food, drinks, … and Hobart Bike Kitchen will be there to do some bike recycling/repair (as well as enjoy the music, art, food, drinks, …).
So if you didn’t get enough Dark Mofo, or you want more, or you just a great evening for all the family your Friday nights are
You all know Matt as one of the wonderful and ever reliable Bike Kitchen chefs.
As President of HBK he also does a power of work in making sure we continue to connect with many other areas of the bike community and you’ll find him at at Derby smashing some trails or out on the mountain leading a Bicycle Network ride.
The post is a bit late but the Bicycle Network Tasmania’s social rides program was recognised last year at the Tasmanian Community Achievement Awards.
While the sites been quite for a while I hope you’ve been keeping in touch with what’s going on at HBK via fbook.
But if you haven’t seen it there here’s a cool event you might want to ride along to. But don’t worry if cycling the family to Mt. Nelson is a bit too hard you’ll be able to spin the legs when you get there and help power the entertainment.
I’m happy to advise that the AGM (& Special General Meeting) will be help on Tuesday 1st November at the New Sydney Hotel commencing at 6pm.

While you may not see it from the number of blog posts we’ve had a busy winter.
ELBO rides again was a lot of fun, but the Sunday Sessions have also kept on rolling with a steady stream of happy bikes.
But now the days are getting longer and warmer so if you haven’t already you’ll soon be wanting to get on a bike and enjoy one of the Bicycle Network’s social rides or just do your own thing with friends & family (or sometimes by yourself because that’s good for the soul too).
