Bike maintenance station installed along Mount Gambier’s Rail Trail

Bike maintenance station installed along Mount Gambier’s Rail Trail
January 14, 2021

Cyclists of all ages and abilities who regularly use Mount Gambier’s Rail Trail now have access to a recently installed bike pump and maintenance station.

The station installed at the Mount Gambier Railway Lands, enables cyclists to undertake maintenance and repairs at a central and convenient location along the popular Rail Trail shared path at any time of the day.

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.

City of Mount Gambier Environmental Sustainability Officer Aaron Izzard notes “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.”

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.

The bike pump and maintenance station are located along the Rail Trail approximately halfway between the Railway Station building and Bay Road.
