Village People

What do the Village People have to do with Bikes Welcome? New Zealand is a collection of villages. Sometimes we are good at looking beyond the boundaries of our village, and sometimes we aren't. When it comes to biking, most of the challenges we face on a daily basis are local, so we look for local solutions. Bikes Welcome will be a local solution. To get Bikes Welcome up and running we need to share the costs among our villages, hence the Pledge Me campaign.
