Photos of the Day - Bike Stations -more going up in Palmetto Bay

Installation continue in Palmetto Bay - working to encourage biking throughout Palmetto Bay.  Working to become bike friendly. Let's "Get Fit Palmetto Bay" and have fun achieving this goal.

Our second Palmetto Bay Bike Service Station is operational - now ready to serve you at Ludovici Park / Palmetto Bay Neighborhood Branch Library at 17641 Old Cutler Road. The sites were chosen based on their proximity to established bike usage patterns, as well as the ease of ability to install them.

We are trying to resolve one of the biggest problems with being a bicycle rider; that is it can be difficult to ride if you don’t have the proper tools yourself and you're not adjacent to a bike shop.  These are very basic tools useful to fix a flat tire, or need to change out a tube or tighten up the spokes on your rims.  Not everyone carries a bike tool set on their bikes. 

We are trying to place the tools for riding out in areas where we are fortunate to have bicycle traffic; both to serve those who currently ride as well as to encourage an increased interest in riding.
