Thank You

Well it’s happened and it was a great success – the Grand Re-Opening of Hobart Bike Kitchen was brilliant.

It looked just like the vision – Community, Cooperation, Bikes, Sunshine, …

For all of that to have happened we have a number of organaisations and people to thank.

Hobart’s indigenous owners the Muwinina people
The Wilderness Society – for a great space, and for sharing our vision
Tas Community Fund – without them there would be no new shed, fewer tools and no trailer, and the bike racking yet to come
Rotary Hobart – for toolboard & new power tools
Hobart City Council – for the rest of the shed, the workbenchs, the lovely Park tools
Island Workshop – for making the shed sit where it’s meant to, and will continue to do so
Hazell Bros – for the concrete on which everything sits
Min. for Sustainable Transport & Leader of The Greens – for the Grand Re-Opening BBQ and for riding bikes
Jackman & McRoss – wasn’t the bread great

Greg Parssey – for all of our signwriting
Luke – for extracting the digit and getting the foundations started

Lance, Ben, Mark, Sam, Paul C, Steve, Ollie, Dan, Tim, Paul W, Rob and to those whose names I don’t know who all contributed to the organising, clearing, digging, shed building, parts stacking, bike moving, … that created the new shed.

To everyone who has been part of Hobart Bike Kitchen since we started, whether you’ve worked on the tools, made a donation or received assitance, and made what we are doing worthwhile.

Lastly, but most importantly, to our partners & families who have enabled this to happen by putting up with us, by being understanding of the amount of bikes and bike related stuff that has entered their lives and by supporting us.

We're going to build a bigger one over there
