Tune up: bicycle maintenance stations coming to Windsor

Cyclists in Windsor should soon have an easier time tuning up while rolling around.

Councillors Chris Holt and Rino Bortolin are teaming up with the Canadian Union of Public Employees to bring six public bicycle maintenance stations to the city core.

“Everybody needs to inflate their tires or do a quick tighten up of their chain every once in a while,” Holt said Tuesday. “So this would provide a service to the existing cyclists out there, and might encourage new cyclists to get out and about.

“But it also shows a commitment to cycling. Citizens need to know we take alternative transportation seriously.”

Details still have to be worked out. But the cost for six bike maintenance stations in Wards 3 and 4 would likely be around $15,000, plus installation.
