The Bethesda Urban Partnership installed a public bike repair station to the Capital Crescent Trail this week.
The repair stand and air pump were recommended by the League of American Bicyclists, which deemed Bethesda a “Bicycle Friendly Community,” in 2012. Based on that feedback, BUP’s Kristen Blackmon worked with a bicycle parking and amenities consultant to order the station and signage.
The repair stand and pump were installed Wednesday just off the trail near a set of stairs to Arlington Road. BUP paid for the equipment and Montgomery Parks allowed BUP to install it, according to BUP Executive Director Dave Dabney.
