(Los Alamitos, CA) – The City of Los Alamitos announces the installation of a new “Dero Fixit Service Station and Air Pump” located in Coyote Creek Park, adjacent to the bike trail. The commercial grade bike repair and air kit station will afford cyclists the opportunity to perform repairs and maintenance. The Fixit includes all the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. With the ability to hang the bike from the hanger arms, the pedals and wheels can spin freely while making adjustments. The Air Kit bike pump allows cyclists to fill a replacement tire or top off their tires so they can continue their ride.
The bike trail adjacent to Coyote Creek Park is just off of the Coyote Creek Channel extending from Katella (south of the 605) to Ball Road. Its reconstruction was completed in the summer and provides regional connectivity and recreational opportunities for biking, jogging, and walking separated from motor vehicles. Some students also use the trail to get to school.
The City thanks Tri-Zone for sponsoring the Bike Station. Tri–Zone, located at 3380 Cerritos Ave. in Los Alamitos, is a swim, bike, and run shop featuring road and triathlon bikes, wetsuits, nutrition, and a huge selection of triathlon gear.
