3 bike repair stations set up in Nueva Ecija town
Three repair stations for bicycles were installed in strategic places in Jaen town in Nueva Ecija province.
The project was initiated by the Rotary Club of Jaen, in coordination with the local government, in response to the escalating oil prices.
Lawyer Sylvester Austria, Jaen’s vice mayor-elect and the club’s charter president, said on Thursday the free bike repair stations are to help residents who use bikes as an inexpensive and healthy mode of transportation.
“Siyempre sa taas ng presyo ng gasolina at krudo ay mas na-encourage nito ang paggamit ng bike,” Austria said in a Philippine News Agency report.
“Yun po ang purpose nitong public bike stations, makatulong sa mga bikers at mai-promote natin yung cycling as an alternative mode of transportation,” he added.
Each station is equipped with tools, including an air pump, that bikers can freely use under a do-it-yourself set-up. They are located at the municipal hall compound, San Agustin Parish and the Barangay Hall of Lambakin.
