Bike Fix-It Stations: Now Appearing At a Rec Center Near You

Screen shot 2015-08-13 at 8.48.51 PMThe City of Austin’s Parks and Recreation Department recently finished installing 24 bicycle fix-it stations at recreation centers around the city, in order to promote bicycle commuting and transportation.

Each fix-it station is a repair stand with an air pump and hand tools, including screwdrivers, wrenches, and a tire lever. That means if you’re out riding and something happens, you’ll have a way to make minor repairs and adjustments on the road, rather than having to carry tools or walk your bike back home or to a shop.
