Thursday, December 12, saw the ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new bicycle repair station at the Wilderness Park!
Made possible by a generous donation by the Claremont Rotary Club, the bike repair station is located right next to the bike stands at the Park entrance.
The Dero Fixit repair station includes all the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. Bikes can hang from the arms of the stand, allowing the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making adjustments. Attached by strong cables to the inside of the strand are essential bike repair tools – Philips and flat head screwdrivers, Allen wrenches, box wrenches, and tire levers – are securely attached to the stand with stainless steel cables and tamper-proof fasteners. Next to the stand is an air pump so Park cyclist can keep their tires topped up and ready to roll.
