The City of Coronado has added a new amenity for cyclists along the Bayshore Bikeway.
Two bicycle repair stations called "Bike Fixtations", which give cyclists access to tools and a pump to make quick repairs right off the path, have been installed along the popular Class I bikeway.
One is located near Glorietta Boulevard and Fourth Street near the Golf Course. The other is located near Fiddler’s Cove.
The stations will include a stand to hold a bike by the seat post while maintenance is performed, as well as basic tools such as a screwdriver, Allen wrenches, tire levers, and an air pump with a gauge securely attached.
Next time you are riding your bike in Coronado and realize you need a tool to make a quick fix, you can thank the city’s Bicycle Advisory Committee for the free access to tools, as they were the driving force behind the initiative of the repair stations.
