Minnesota state parks and trails offer new bike tune-up stations


Mon, May 25th, 2015
Posted in All The Great Outdoors

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has installed 31 new bicycle tune-up stations in state parks and on state trails. The stations are equipped with basic bike maintenance tools, including air pumps.

“These stations are a convenient new amenity on our trails,” says Andrew Korsberg, DNR state trail program coordinator. “They make it easy to pump up tires or do some light maintenance on your bike while out on a ride.”

Tune-up stations are now available along the following state trails, state parks and recreation areas:

•Root River/Harmony-Preston Valley state trails – eight stations.

•Paul Bunyan State Trail – five stations.

•Heartland State Trail – three stations.

•Gateway/Brown’s Creek state trails – three stations.

•Luce Line State Trail – one station.

•Willard Munger State Trail – three stations.

•Douglas State Trail – one station.

•Cuyuna Lakes State Trail/Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area – two stations.

•Fort Snelling State Park – one station.

•William O’Brien State Park – one station.

•Jay Cooke State Park – one station.

•Gooseberry Falls State Park – one station.

•Split Rock Lighthouse State Park – one station.

The stations were purchased as part of the Pedal Minnesota (www.pedalmn.com) initiative, which strives to make Minn. the “Bike Friendly State”. Funding for most of the stations was made possible through a grant from the Federal Recreational Trails Program and matching state funds. One station was purchased by the Gateway-Brown’s Creek Trail Association and another by the Preston Community Foundation and the Preston Tourism Board.

For more information on biking in Minnesota’s state parks and on state trails, and to access a map with locations of the new tune-up stations, visit www.mndnr.gov/biking.
