If you’re brave enough to be a winter biker, you’ve got some new tools if you run into trouble along the trail. A fix-it station for bicycles was recently installed in downtown Eau Claire’s Phoenix Park, which is right at the nexus of the Old Abe and Chippewa River state trails. The bright-blue station, paid for by the Eau Claire Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission, includes a rack where you can hang your cycle while making simple repairs. The station also features an air pump and a number of tools attached by cables. According to the Chippewa Valley Transit Alliance, the city will install an identical repair station at Lakeshore Park next spring.
