WANTED: Your Old Bikes for SCANZ 2011

We need your bikes, helmets, locks, lights, tools etc and anything else you think might be useful!

The Let’s Go project is keen for the more than 20 artists, scientists and presenters from SCANZ 2011 to go by foot, bike or bus for the duration of their stay in New Plymouth (13-30 January 2011).

Unused/unwanted bikes will be refurbished for use by our Eco sapiens guests as part of the Miniature Green Bikes scheme. On conclusion of their residency the bikes will be sold to the public, with all proceeds going to Hive Taranaki, our regional environment centre.

Three ways to donate your bike:

1. Drop off at WITT reception before January 11.
2. Drop off at New Plymouth District Council reception on Tuesday 11 January between 1-5pm.
3. Email benefieldn@npdc.govt.nz to arrange for your bike to be collected.
