Steamwhistle expands its network of bike repair stations
Steamwhistle has been quietly making Toronto more bike friendly since it installed its first bike repair station outside the brewery back in in 2013. We once dreamed about a roll out of such cycling infrastructure after spotting it in other cities, and now it looks like our wish is set to come true.
As Biking Toronto reports, over the last year or so the beer company has installed similar stations at the Brick Works, the Duke of York pub, and most recently in front of Bike Sauce. They've also been busy across Ontario, installing bike repair infrastructure in cities like Ottawa, Guelph, London, Hamilton, Peterborough, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and Kingston (to name only a few).
According to the brewery, the plan is to continue expanding the network. Each station boasts a pump and 10 tools attached to a stand that helps to elevate the bike for easy maintenance work. It's wonderfully simple and useful should you need to do some mid-ride tinkering. More like this, please.
