A bike pump and maintenance station has been installed at the Mount Gambier Railway Lands, enabling cyclists to undertake maintenance and repairs at a central and convenient location along the popular Rail Trail shared path.
The station is the first of its kind in Mount Gambier and includes retractable tools such as hex keys, screwdrivers, wrenches and tyre levers. It also features a bike stand which conveniently holds the bike above ground level allowing the pedals and wheels to spin freely while repairs are undertaken.
Cyclists of all ages and abilities are regularly using the Rail Trail and this station now allows bike riders to easily complete repairs or maintenance on the go at any time of the day. City of Mount Gambier Environmental Sustainability Officer Aaron Izzard
The station includes an instructional label demonstrating how the maintenance station can be used and includes a QR code that links to online bike maintenance videos.
“Whether your tyres are a little flat, or your chain has dislodged, there is a multitude of tools available to assist people to get back on their bikes and keep moving along the Rail Trail,” Mr Izzard said.
The bike pump and maintenance station are located along the Rail Trail approximately halfway between the Railway Station building and Bay Road.
