Fixit Stations-to keep you riding when we are not available

by Ruth Kaser for NE Ohio Tidbits for Cyclers

Face it, you do not always get a flat when you are near RD Bike Shop. Flats happen, as well as other things that keep your wheels from rolling, at the most inopportune times- like when you forgot to carry a spare tube and tire levers or a pump. Help is available for you! 

Summit Metro Park Crews have installed new bicycle repair stations on the Towpath Trail and the Bike & Hike Trail. The locations are: • Memorial Parkway Trailhead, 499 Memorial Parkway, Akron. • Wilbeth Road Trailhead, 392 W. Wilbeth Road, Akron. • State Route 303 parking lot, 64 W. Streetsboro Road, Boston Heights. The stations, manufactured by Dero, feature tools to fix a flat tire, adjust brakes and more. Smartphone users can learn more about how to fix bike problems by scanning a QR code on the stations, which will redirect to an instructional bike repair website. The QR code will also allow riders to find the location of other bike repair stations.
