Bicycle Maintenance Stations
Palm Coast has four Bicycle Maintenance Stations – at Waterfront Park, Linear Park, the Lehigh Trail trailhead on Belle Terre Parkway and the Graham Swamp trailhead on Old Kings Road – available for use 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The stations have a horizontal, padded post to hang the bike from so bicyclists can rotate the pedals to adjust gears, change a tire or perform other maintenance. A tire pump with a tire pressure gauge is also provided at each station. All necessary tools, including metric sizes, are provided at the station and hang from attached cables inside the main post. A QR Code – which can be scanned using a smart phone – is displayed on the main post to assist bicyclists who need information on how to change a tire, adjust the gears, brakes, etc. Written instructions, as well as videos, are available using the QR Code.
