The Lodi Parks Committee received a donation of two bicycle repair stations to use in area parks as it sees fit.
Committee member Mike Bilkey said during an Aug. 4 meeting that the stations are generally connected to electricity for air, or there can be a hand pump available. There is a place to lock your bike into for repairs, with wrenches included.
The committee also decided where to place the repair stations.
“In talking about doing what we want to do in Doctors Park, we could put one there and we can put the other one in the Goeres Park or Habermann Park area,” Mike said. “I’ve seen them in a lot of towns and they get a lot of use, depending on where they are located.”
Bilkey added that the stations are usually bolted into the cement, which provides the committee flexibility if there was ever a need
