Tumeke Cycle Space will be at the Grey Lynn Festival this year on Saturday 30th of November.
This year we will be offering bike parking, so ride to the festival in style and park up right next to our stall and lock up for the day with the knowlege that it will be looked over with trustworthy eyes.
Show off your bike by leaving it at our stall.
Find us next to the house trucks at the Eglin Street entrance, see the map below:
Tumeke Cycle Space appears in the current issue of NZ Lawyer magazine, thanks to one of our volunteers, Natasha. It reads as a great summary for what we are all about so if you are new(ish) to us then take a look!
Great that word is spreading, and we can’t wait to be inundated with cycling lawyers
An educational post from Cycle Action Network member, Hank Weiss.
“My family eagerly decided to forgo a second car four years ago when we moved to Dunedin, New Zealand; a decision we have never regretted. It turns out by doing so, we are not just happier, healthier, and polluting less, but we are also considerably wealthier while helping our local economy through the ‘multiplier effect’. Let me explain.”… Read more on Hank’s blog.
Hi folks, Tumeke is running short on volunteers with the departure of several of our key ones last month and next. So this month, June, will be our last batch of Wednesday night shop hours until we get new volunteers.
If you’d like to volunteer at Tumeke and thereby help keep Wednesday nights going, check out our volunteer page!
This is a biggie, Tumeke Cycle Space is proud to support Silo Park Sprints. It’s been talked about for months and now it is here, Silo Park Sprints! Held on a straight, no traffic road, these 400m sprints will test the legs of the fastest and the hearts of the most fit. Your ten dollars buys you into the racing as well as beer for the afternoon and your chance at the cash purse (minimum $100)! Sponsors soon to come.

Auckland Tweed Run!
Sunday 7th April 2013
Meeting at T.Whites Everyday Bikes (132 Symonds St) and riding to to Highwic House
Auckland homage to the international anachronistic Tweed Run phenomena of dressing up in old fashioned clothes and riding a bicycle. It’s free and all are welcome —just find some tweed, bring a picnic and come on a bike! This time round we are collaborating with Highwic House by riding our bikes to their Art Deco Day Out picnic. It is up to attendees to bring their own helmets and safety gear and be responsible for themselves in the traffic.
