Bike repair stations installed at five sites in Batavia
The city of Batavia’s Bicycle Commission, along with community partners, has installed five bicycle repair stations throughout Batavia, officials said.
The stations include free to use tools to repair bikes and air to fill tires, according to a press release about the installation.
The five stations are located along the Fox River Trail and throughout Batavia. Locations are on the Fox River Trail near Hall Quarry, in Laurelwood Park at Logan Street, on the Fox River Trail near Fabyan Parkway, at Rotolo Middle School and at Batavia Apartments on Wilson Street.
The repair station project was funded by the city of Batavia, and the Batavia Park District, Batavia Public School District 101 and the Kane County Forest Preserve District assisted in the installation, according to the release.
Barco Products, an outdoor furniture company located in Batavia, built the stations.
The stations provide tools to fix issues such as flat tires, adjusting a seat or reattaching a pedal so cyclists may continue their ride, officials said. Stations can also be found elsewhere along the Fox River Trail corridor.
“We are thrilled that the five new repair stands have arrived in time for riding season,” said Steve Ericksen, a member of the Batavia Bicycle Commission, in the release. “We are grateful to the city, park district and forest preserve for their collaboration on this project.”
