About Us

Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.

 Dan

Dan

Dan worked his way around the world as a bike-messenger and chef. His two passions of hospitality and bikes have come together to give Bicycle Junction its unique flavour. Dan completed his chef’s apprenticeship in Copenhagen. His Danish heritage dictates that cycling runs through his veins and even as he completed his education he plied the streets of Copenhagen as a messenger and rickshaw rider. He believes strongly that cycling is for all, not just enthusiasts or sportspeople.  You will find him riding either his Surly Steamroller fixed gear or riding with his three children in the Christiania Cargo Bike.

 Ezra

Ezra

You may have seen Ezra lugging camera gear between shoots on the weekend atop his vintage road bike. Or perhaps you've crossed paths with him lugging guitar amps between Cuba Street music venues on one of our cargo bikes. He's a busy man with his sights set on multiple creative projects at any one time - but he doesn't let that get in the way of providing the common Newtown folk with a delicious morning coffee, some light hearted banter and a friendly face. A dedicated musician, videographer and street-cruising bike enthusiast - if you haven't met him in our shopfront already, you're bound to see him somewhere around Wellington in the near future. Don't be a stranger!

 Ilya

Ilya

Whether on his mountain bike in the wilderness, his touring bike in European Alps or fixing bikes in our cosy little workshop - Ilya is at home. Trained by Norwegian bicycle masters in their home territory, his knowledge is extensive and his skills are well honed. Oh, he’s also a bloody nice guy! Always up for a chin-wag and happy to share his well-traveled expertise from both in and out of the workshop. Furthermore, check out that beard!

 Stuart

Stuart

Stuart was a self-confessed car nerd when he lucked into his first job in a bike store at 17. The same level of nerdiness has carried over into his passion for cycling. If it’s not slipping sideways down some muddy stopbank, it’s thinking through all the ways to go slowly, carry too much, and go too far on bicycles. He’ll be stoked to make a plan to help you revamp anything cheap and cheerful you bring our way. Stuart is always up for a yarn, a tall tale, hyperbole, and to just get silly on, or adjacent to bicycles.

 Audrey

Audrey

A recent addition to Bicycle Junction family, Audrey shares an enthusiasm for bikes, coffee, and community. She learned to ride here in Wellington, tearing up the local school basketball courts and Oriental Bay. Later, she hit the streets of Christchurch where she developed her skills and confidence in biking for transport. Audrey is a big advocate for the environmental pros of cycling, and has recently developed an interest in the inner workings of bikes and their moving parts. When she's not making your flat white or learning mechanics, Audrey is busy tending to her vege garden, getting fired up about politics, or enjoying the local music scene.

 Greg

Greg

Born in London and raised in Sussex, Greg discovered a passion for cycling in his early twenties. Racing on the road and exploring Europe by bike, cycling became a big part of his life. Working in the UK bicycle industry for several years he has developed a varied knowledge of all things bike. After exploring New Zealand's best mountain biking spots for a summer he found Wellington and the Bicycle Junction the place he wanted to be!

Social Philosophy

We believe the simple choice of riding a bicycle as a daily mode of transport can be life-changing, while also helping to change the world. All over the planet bicycles are helping people to reconnect with their communities, appreciate the environment, and enjoy sustainable and healthy lifestyles. That's why we ride ours every day.

Coffee!

Grab a brew

Everyone is welcome at the junction, whether you ride routinely or are bicycle-y challenged. If you know a good extraction when you taste one in your coffee cup, our place is yours.
