The photo above is of a bicycle service station at the Whole Foods Flagship store in Austin, TX. It’s free to use and comes equipped with tools and a pump and you can hang your bicycle from the saddle to make repairs.

While I’m unaware of any such station in Toronto, I do know that to encourage and support cycling the Evergreen Brick Works site in the Don Valley has a bicycle service station called the Bike Works.

What do you think of the Whole Foods bicycle service station? Would knowing that there’s a service station encourage you to cycle longer distances when running errands?
