I love my new home town

Not only is there a bunch of old bikes floating around but the bike scene is still huge bike scene. A couple days ago my son, my cousin, and I we're riding the bike trail to the skate park and the city installed these literally every mile on the trail. Air pump with a gauge and every tool for repairs as well as a rack to put your bike on to repair it. I was so impressed http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/213457/img_20160904_17200057cf69d183.jpg

Re: I love my new home town

The best part was my tire pressure was low and only had my debit card on me and all the air pumps at the gas stations are $1.50 to use then we roll up on this.

Your about 2 hours south of me. I haven't seen anything like that up here yet. I'm sure it won't be long till they come up missing and the pump doesn't work. sad

Re: I love my new home town

Nice.  There's one of those at the sports complex where my son plays football and one other place I cannot recall.  The fact that your town has so many is very cool.

Re: I love my new home town

I think the people in this town don't mind. Just a couple weeks ago the shut down all down town to have a trails and ales bike festival which they do every year. They have bike scavenger hunts, a bike bar crawl, bike companies set up tents and have team riders do demos, bike parade that everybody can join. Its a lot of fun for all ages and genre's of bike riders.

Re: I love my new home town

You have a very cool town, I want to move there! I hope nobody steals or vandalizes this stuff, that would ruin it for everybody. Nothing pisses me off more than to go air up a tire at a convenience store and some seathole has the hose cut off! Maybe some surveillance cameras could help prevent this kind of stuff from happening.

HEB downtown? In SA town?

It's more worthwhile than the majority of what our taxes go to.

Most projects like this are usually funded by HOT (hotel occupancy tax) or similar which can only be spent on certain things. Our club has donated similar setups in conjunction with the city using membership dues. There's never a shortage of curmudgeons to protest cycling infrastructure.

I'm totally down with tax dollars going toward promoting a lifestyle that is environmentally and socially conscious.  I'm not down with $38.6 billion of federal tax dollars going to Lockheed Martin while only $33 billion goes to helping low income college students.

Re: I love my new home town

We have a ton of really nice bike trails going all over our city here.  And we have these exact same setups you posted all over the town.  We have had them for like a year or two at least, and i dont recall ever finding a missing or broken tool at them.  People seem to really appreciate and take care of them here.  I cant believe it, but its true.
