About

We are a group of Kiwis with a common interest in making and using human powered vehicles (HPVs for short).

Most people seem to think recumbent trikes and bikes when “HPV” is mentioned, but we encourage all vehicles which are powered by human effort, whether it travels on land, sea or in the air..

Kiwi HPV Inc was formed in 2003 when HPV Canterbury, based in Christchurch, Canterbury, decided to formalise its role as NZ’s only HPV group.

The earthquakes which hit Christchurch in 2010 & 2011 affected our activities for some time but we are up and running again and look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming activities.
