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.

To get Bikes Welcome up and running we need to share the costs among our villages, hence the Pledge Me campaign.
