The Bike Repair Station funded by the Thayer Street District Management Authority (TSDMA) officially opens for public use after Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.
A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony November 9th officially opened the new Bike Repair Station in the Thayer Street District to the public. Located on the side of the Brown University Bookstore on Olive Street, corner of Olive and Thayer, the Bike Repair Station includes specialized bicycle repair tools and an air pump. The Bike Repair Station is the newest improvement to the District funded by the TSDMA. Legend Bicycle shop located on Brooke Street has entered into a maintenance sponsorship agreement with the TSDMA to assure the station will be repaired and tools replaced if necessary.
The idea of installing a bike repair station on Thayer started more than 20 months during a meeting between TSDMA Executive Director, Donna Personeus and Eric Weiss of City of Providence Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Commission & East Coast Greenway Alliance, when Mr. Weiss shared his wish list for Thayer which included a bicycle repair station. The TSDMA relied on the expertise of both Mr. Weiss and Mr. Madden, owner of Legend Bicycle in the selection of the ideal repair station that would both serve the needs of neighborhood recreational bike riders and avid area cyclists. Brown University was instrumental in providing a secure location that would allow the station to be open to cyclists year round as well as protected by video surveillance. “The Bike Repair Station is a great example of teamwork and how positive improvements can happen when people and organization come together to support their community” stated TSDMA Executive Director, Donna Personeus.
