Free Bicycle Repair Stations Throughout City


The five stations are located along the Fox River Trail and throughout Batavia. Locations are:

 The Fox River Trail near Hall Quarry

 Laurelwood Park at Logan Street

 The Fox River Trail near Fabyan Parkway

 Rotolo Middle School

 Batavia Apartments on Wilson Street. 

The repair station project was funded by the City of Batavia, and the Batavia Park District, Batavia Public School District 101, and the Kane County Forest Preserve assisted in the installation. Barco Products, an outdoor furniture company located in Batavia, built the stations.

 The stations provide tools to fix issues such as flat tires, adjusting a seat, or reattaching a pedal so cyclists may continue their ride. Stations can be found elsewhere along the Fox River Trail corridor, and Batavia is pleased to join other communities to create a network of free bicycle tools, said Steve Ericksen, a member of the City of Batavia Bicycle Commission.

“We are thrilled that the five new repair stands have arrived in time for riding season. We are grateful to the city, park district, and forest preserve for their collaboration on this project,” Ericksen said.

 Ericksen added that a thankful cyclist used the station at Laurelwood immediately after it was installed.
