Bike pump and repair station installed for cyclists

Cyclists getting out and about now have access to a public bike pump and repair station in the City of Whittlesea.

The new station has been installed in Bundoora at Norris Bank Reserve along the popular Darebin Creek bike trail.

Bike paths across the municipality are increasingly being used by both professional and recreational users, with a notable increase recently due the current pandemic. This station allows bike riders to easily complete on-the-go repairs on any day and at any time.

The bike pump and repair station is the first of its kind in the City of Whittlesea and includes retractable tools such as screwdrivers, wrench and hex keys, bike pump and wheel chock which holds the bike when using the pump.

If successful, Council will explore other locations to install more bike pump and repair stations.
