bike repair stations

SEVEN bike repair stations have popped up around Vincent so riders can do a little tune up on the fly. They’re fitted with screwdrivers, wrenches, allen keys, tyre levers and a pump and cost Vincent council $5500 and the WA transport department $3500. They’re operating now at Woodville Reserve, Oxford Street, Beatty Park, Forrest Park, the Bourke Street shared path and Banks Reserve. Cyclists asked for the stations during bike network planning in 2013.
