We were glad to attend this great gathering on November 18th to dedicate the first bike repair station in downtown Ithaca – funded by our Neighborhood Mini-Grant Program!! Biking brings business to downtowns and providing this kind of infrastructure enables all sorts of residents to own and use their bikes regularly. Our team was glad to support this collaborative project of Downtown Ithaca Alliance, Go Ithaca, and BikeWalk Tompkins.
The repair stand is set up in the Press Bay Courtyard and comes with a great set of attached tools for any number of repairs to your bike. Alongside is a sturdy tire pump as well. Plus you can aim your phone at the QR code and pick among several videos that will provide you step by step instructions to make your particular bike repair.
If all goes well with this first one, the collaborative team behind this hopes to install several more at various points in the City.
Thanks to BikeWalk Tompkins, Downtown Ithaca Alliance, Go Ithaca, and the businesses down in Press Bay Court!
