Green Bay, Wis.­- (November 3, 2017) – On November 2, 2017, nearly sixty people showed up at the Neville Public Museum to celebrate the unveiling of 14 bike repair stations throughout Brown County. Attendees included Mayor Jim Schmitt and Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach, as well as local bike enthusiasts and bike station donors.

The team indicated that two additional donors, KI and the Rail Yard, have stepped forward based on the media coverage of their project. The two additional stations will bring the total to 16 bike repair stations in Brown County. The team’s original goal was to install two to five units.

Team spokesperson Rana Chrudimsky commented on the support the team has received: “We are thrilled that our project is part of a broader initiative to bring awareness to the resources and trails we have for cycling in this area.” 

The repair stands include eight tools on retractable braided stainless-steel cables, as well as a tire pump. (See attached photo.)
