Bike Repair Station Dedication
The main purpose of the Lehigh Wheelmen is to promote the general interest in cycling in all its phases.
To fulfill this purpose, the LWA with Lehigh County installed and dedicated a bike repair station just beyond the entrance to Rodale Fitness Park entrance for use by all who cycle and use the park.
The dedication occurred on July 10 with over 40 members and quests in attendance and was proceeded by:
- An organized ride for those new to cycling.
- A Flat Repair Clinic led by Fitness Central.
- A session on how to use the new Bike Repair Station.
We dedicated the bike repair station to all who enjoy cycling and to the memory of 3 of our long-time ride leaders:
- Bill Derby
- Ron Helmuth
- Pat Ytsma
During the dedication ceremony, Dan Hartzell, Lehigh County Commissioner, presented the LWA with the proclamation in the attached photo in recognition of LWA’s contribution to the community.
