Newmarket residents can now enjoy the newly installed bike repair station located at Newmarket’s Riverwalk Commons (Corner of Doug Duncan Drive and Timothy Street).
The bike repair station includes:
- Bicycle pump with fittings for common bicycle tire valve types
- A stand to elevate and stabilize the bicycle
- A selection of common bicycle tools
- Instructional signage covering basic use of the stands and station
A bike repair station was part of a recommendation from the Active Transportation Implementation Plan and emerged through public consultation at a Public Information Centre and an online questionnaire.
Bike repair stations will give cyclists the confidence that they can reliably complete their cycling trip even if they experience a tire puncture or other mechanical issues.
One more bike station will be installed over the next month. The location has not yet been determined and will be communicated once installation is complete.
