Repair Stations Offer Riders Advice and On-Site Tools
Bike Fix Stations Spread Through Healthy Duluth
It’s been nearly two years now since Continental Bike and Sustainable Duluth received a Park Fund Grant from the City of Duluth to add repair stations for riders.
With the booming popularity of locals and tourists getting outside and active around the Northland, it’s not only important to keep yourself healthy, but also maintain a strong relationship with the maintenance of your bike.
The Healthy Duluth Area Coalition is continuing to add more stations like this around Duluth.
Currently, air pumps and eight different tools are located at Lester Park, the Lakewalk, Lincoln Park, and the head of the Munger Trail.
“It’s really making Duluth a more bike friendly town and these are just part of the amenities that people can use to enjoy those trails.” Andre Watt, Owner of Continental Ski and Bike said.
Smartphone users can scan a QR code on the station, and instantly watch videos of quick repairs, produced by the staff over at Continental Ski and Bike.
“I think it’s one of those things that you know people are just excited that it’s there if they need it and more than anything it’s just finding out where they are located,” Watt said.
