The Wellesley Police Department and Sustainable Wellesley are teaming up to raise money for a community bike maintenance station and tire pump, in an effort to make Wellesley even more bicycle friendly.
A permanent community bike maintenance station and tire pump will encourage bicycle safety and reduce traffic, and ensure that everyone has access to the tools they need to maintain their bikes.
The Wellesley Police Department, lauded state-wide for their pedestrian and bicycle safety education work, has offered an easily accessible spot outside the police station. This will create a gathering space for repair classes, bicycle safety classes, bicycle rides, and more.
“The bicycle maintenance and tire repair station will make Wellesley even more welcoming for bicyclists of all ages and abilities,” said Wellesley Police Chief Pilecki. “With this station, the public will have free access to the most commonly used bike repair tools,” Pilecki said.
“Our community is a wonderful place to walk and bike,” said Quentin Prideaux, President of Sustainable Wellesley. “Many trips in town are less than a mile or two and as fast, if not faster, by bike. To see an example of the station, please click here,” Prideaux said.
Donations can be made on the Sustainable Wellesley’s website, Facebook page, or by check — made payable to Sustainable Wellesley and sent to 5 Hilltop Road, Wellesley, MA 02482.
