Bike auction aims to find new homes for old bikes
9 February 2007
In a bid to get Christchurch residents more involved in cycling, Christchurch City Council, University of Canterbury and Turners Auctions have teamed up and will hold the inaugural Turners Big Bike Auction on Saturday 3 March at the university.
Members of the public interested in selling bikes can drop them off at Turners Auctions on Lowther Street in Sockburn or at 15 Lester Street in the city. Sellers of bikes also have the option of donating proceeds to Child Cancer Foundation.
Council Marketing Manager Richard Stokes says the auction will cater for any kind of bikes.
“We are keen to get bikes of all shapes and sizes including children’s bikes. Ideally the bikes will be road worthy but if there is just a small repair that is needed then they will still be taken,” he says.
