Port Jervis Bike Repair Station

Orange County Planning and Health Departments, together with the Port Jervis Free Library and Port Jervis Outdoor Club, installed a public-use bicycle service station near the campground area of Elks Brox Park. The Dero Fixit station features all of the materials needed to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance. Attached by stainless steel cables are a number of tools, including screwdrivers, wrenches, and two tire levers. Adjacent to the station is a heavy-duty air pump. You can change a flat tire, adjust the brakes and gears, or fix a wobbly seat. The library’s bicycle service station is free for anyone to use.
