Bicycle Repair Station at Minnesota Riverfront Park

The DNR has been placing Bicycle Tune-Up Stations along state trails in an attempt to make Minnesota the “Bike Friendliest State”. Now Burnsville will be adding one of these stations to the Minnesota Riverfront Park. These stations offer basic tools and an air pump to do a quick tune-up should you need maintenance on a family bike ride.
