Dealing with a bicycle problem while out on River Walk in Idaho Falls just got a bit easier. A new bike repair station has been installed for public use on River Walk near Memorial Drive and “B” Street.
The Dero Fix-it bike repair station is the first of its kind in Idaho Falls.
The station includes a bike stand with tools that are connected by cables. The station also includes pumps that accommodate different valve types. There’s even a QR code on the tower that cyclists can scan with their smartphones to get instructions on such things as fixing a flat tire, adjusting gears and removing a wheel.
Idaho Falls Community Pathways is a non-profit organization devoted to promoting people-powered transportation in Idaho Falls. The organization raised the $1,600 needed for the repair station through donations and fundraising events such as Earth Day and the Foothills to Freedom Run.
