The first BIKE FIX-IT STATION has been installed at Morehead Park on the Downtown Greenway at Spring Garden and South Edgeworth Streets.
It was given to Greensboro by BikeWalkNC as a thank you for Greensboro hosting the NC Bike Summit in 2015. Recycles Bike Shop located at 908A Spring Garden Street has volunteered to maintain the fix-it station and make sure it is in top working condition for when you need to stop by and make a repair to your ride.
