Bike Maintenance Stations

“Quick stop to make your bike tip top”

The council supports cycling and undertakes initiatives to encourage the use of cycling within the city. These new bike repair stands are a free, public feature which will allow all cyclists to conveniently maintain their bicycles. This will make it easier for cyclists to swap the car for a bicycle on a regular basis!

The City of Charles Sturt bike maintenance stations provide:

  • Secure stands to hold the bicycle during repairs
  • A range of retractable tools for minor repair works
  • A stainless steel bike pump

State Winner National Winner Email Badge - 2015In 2015, the City of Charles Sturt won the National and the South Australian title in the Heart Foundation Local Government Awards for demonstrating best practice in creating healthier communities. The stands were purchased with funding from this award and from OPAL Charles Sturt.
