Build your own bike rack

School bike rack made from car tyres.

Instructions for making a 'ReCycle Rack' for bikes and scooters, using old car tyres and timber.

This rack is suitable for schools.

  • Made with car tyres diverted from waste.
  • Easy to use for all ages and wheel sizes.
  • Cheap and easy to build.

Thanks to Greater Wellington Regional Council for sharing these instructions.

Created by Wellington designer Richard Hovey, the first prototype was assembled with help from Kahurangi School students. Testing was carried out in several schools before he finalised the design.
