The county to Portland’s west is upgrading the bike-friendliness of five of its public buildings with an amenity that’s becoming almost common in the area: self-service bike repair stations.

It’s a benefit to employees and, presumably, anyone else who might get to these Washington County locations on a bike.

County sustainability coordinator Robin Straughan wrote in an email to workers this week that the stations “will be installed this winter/spring.”

“The Bike Fixtation work stands include securely attached tools for repairs, a pump and stand for working on your bike,” she wrote.

We rely on financial support from readers like you.

The locations:

· Service Center East near the existing bike racks
· Walnut Street Center east of the front door (under the awning)
· Public Services Building north of the auditorium near the existing bike racks
· Justice Services Building loading dock
· Hagg Lake

It’s a project of the county’s facilities and parks services. The stations’ local distributor is Huntco.
