City of Orlando Installs New Bike Repair Stations Keeping Orlando moving continues to be a priority for the City of Orlando. By providing multi-modal forms of transportation, those who live, work and play in Orlando have a variety of options for getting around the City. Part of this effort includes the City’s commitment to investing and improving our biking amenities. Currently, Orlando is home to more than 300 miles of urban bicycling trails, signed routes and lanes and has been a designated Bicycle Friendly Community since 2000. In the past year the City has: • Added more wayfinding signage for cyclists at intersections high-use corridors like Delaney Avenue, Highland Avenue and Summerlin Avenue. • Completed the Orlando Primary Bicycle Route Study which identified preferred corridors to close existing gaps in the overall trail network.

• Launched a bike rack request program to allow businesses to request a bike rack to be installed in front of their business. To further this effort, the City has installed four bike repair stations at strategic locations throughout the City to accommodate commuter and recreational cyclists in Orlando. The repair stations feature an air pump and set of tools so that cyclists have a convenient place to perform basic bike repairs or maintenance without the need to go to a bicycle shop or return home. The stations will allow riders to do things like pump up their tires, fix a flat or adjust their bike seat.
