Contact: Christopher DermanBig South Fork National River & Recreation Area now has a bike repair station located at the Bandy Creek Visitor Center. A second one will soon be available at Blue Heron Campground.
The self-service stations are equipped with basic maintenance tools, such as an air pump, screwdrivers, wrenches, tire levers, and a hex key set. They are a unique design that allows the bike to be hung on the upper part of the station during repair.
The two bike repair stations were made possible by recent donations to honor the memory of Dennis Cribbit, a former park employee.
Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area has almost 300 miles of mountain biking trails and in 2012, was the first National Park Service unit to receive the International Mountain Biking Association’s elite "Epic Ride" designation.
