The Cook Islands' 24 MPs are the recipients of brand new quad bikes gifted by China.
30 Linhai bikes were among US$1 million worth of agricultural equipment donated to the Cook Islands last month and most of them were given to the MPs.
MP George Maggie says the quadbikes are owned by the government and were handed to the MPs for use in their constituencies.
He says after he received his on Friday he set to work, using it to carry equipment for cleaning up Tupapa.
"I clean my village every day and now I'm talking to you I'm on the road cleaning the hedge, cutting all the hedge, doing all the work, make the roads clean and nice and safe for the people."
George Maggie says he is very thankful to the Chinese government.
