Hello Hobart Bike Kitchen champions,
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
Are you interested in a retro cycle, perhaps something from 1997 and earlier that might be road or track related.
We have a once a year auction to raise the funds that keep us operating for the rest of the year.
There are some great forums on Facebook and similar where people who have an interest in these bikes get together, generally to share pictures and to offer for sale but not to auction,
We’d like to share with you what we have to offer on this special weekend as there are some bikes that deserve the love of someone with a real passion for them.
Please have a look at what is on offer this year in Auction Bikes – 2016
in particular you might like
Peugeot Classic Roadie
We’re happy to take offers if you can’t attend, or to follow up on any questions you might have re size etc..
We’d also be happy to organise delivery, at your expense, if you’d like.
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).
So make a plan.
- Check the Upcoming Sessions
- Get along to fix your bike, or one from our donations
As the saying goes, as easy as 1, 2, 3.
We find as the days get longer, the numbers coming to the Sunday Sessions increases so don’t leave it too long.
Besides the sooner you do it, the sooner you’re out on your bike.
Bike Love, HBK
NO SUNDAY SESSION
It’s Cycling Sunday and as the headline says a perfect day to get on our bikes.
(though that’s every day)

So we’re getting the bikes out heading off to Bellerive and going for a ride.
We hope you do as well. It doesn’t have to be one of the organised rides, make your own Cycling Sunday and head off with the kids or find a new cafe.
