When you ride your bike, there’s nothing worse than being away from home and getting a flat tire or needing to make an adjustment to your bike and not having the tools to get you back on the road. Or, you notice a malfunction before you even leave the house and you don’t have the tools you need. Whether you’re en route or just without tools, the Denver Public Library, in collaboration with the Denver Community Active Living Coalition, is providing bicycle repair kits at seven library branch locations beginning May 22 for short-term check-out:
Kits can be checked out for up to two hours on-site (at the library) and are available free with your Denver Public Library card. Don’t have a card? Don’t worry! Staff can get you signed up instantly.
Each kit contains basic tools to repair tires or make adjustments to your ride:
1 dual-valve pump with pressure gauge for inflating tires
1 set of allen wrenches for minor adjustments
1 adjustable wrench for minor adjustments
1 set of tire levers to remove/replace a tire
Tube patches, sandpaper and glue for patching a hole in a tube
Illustrated instructions (English and Spanish) for fixing a flat tire
You can find more information about the toolkits at the DenverCALC blog and the Denver Public Library blog.
