Fixit Stands are Popping Up around Houston
The second of five Bike Fixit Stands has been installed at the Waterworks at Buffalo Bayou Park. The stand is there for users to make minor bike repairs while they are enjoying a ride along the Bayou. Each of the stands features common tools for bike maintenance and an air pump, especially handy for those unexpected flats when on a ride.
These repair stations were made possible through a grant from the REI Foundation and are being deployed along Houston’s bayou trails and in areas where people need a fast fix for their bike. The first stand was installed at the Third Ward Bike Shop, providing an amenity for those that prefer DIY repairs. Stands three, four, and five will be making their appearances soon thanks to our partners at the Houston Parks Board and City Council Member Robert Gallegos.
