The newest addition to the bike-friendliness of the Near Southside is this: a free-to-use bike repair station, installed right on Magnolia Avenue at the Chat Room bar.
The station features an assortment of tethered tools, a stand to hold a bike in various repair positions, and an air pump. It was paid for and installed by The Night Riders, the famed twice-a-week bike-based bar crawl that calls the Chat its home base. What’s more, I’ve been told that the Night Riders plan on installing more of these at bars in the central city.
Very cool – both the initial station and the future plans!
