Matt’s efforts recognised

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.

Free family film day

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.

Happy cycling, HBK

Retro / Classic Cycles available

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

Spring is in the air

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.

  1. Check the Upcoming Sessions
  2. Get along to fix your bike, or one from our donations
  3. Ride

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
