Bicycle repair station dedicated
The recently-installed Bike Repair Station at the Davis Street Wayside was dedicated on Saturday, August 17. About 40 people attended the ceremony, which was emceed by John Brunner. He introduced a number of dignitaries, including Clare and Bob Schuette, parents of Rob Schuette, in whose memory the repair station was being dedicated. Rob, who died in August, 2012, during a mountain bike race, was an avid bicyclist.
The station, for the use of bike riders needing to do minor bike repairs, is located at the Davis Street Wayside, approximately one-half mile north of the Aurora Health Clinic. Besides including a bike holder for raising the bike off the ground for convenient repair, there is an air pump, wrenchs, and tire tools. The stand has a posted QR-code which allows smart phone users to access a special bike repair website.
The repair station is sponsored by The Fitness Store, Pro-View Home Inspection, and Friends of Mariners Trail. FOMT thanks these Manitowoc-area businesses for their support of Mariners Trail.
