Medford Boy Scout installs bike repair stations

Aiden Pembleton is an Eagle Scout candidate

Eagle Scout candidate Aiden Pembleton of Troop 48, assembled and installed two bike repair stations for Medford Township’s two newer bike trails at Cow Pointe and at the Hartford Crossing Park Mountain Bike Trail as his required Eagle Scout service project.
The repair station at Cow Pointe is located next to the Gazebo; and the repair station at Hartford Crossing is located at the trail head located behind the football field off of Church Road.
These bike repair stations will allow trail users to pump up flat tires, adjust brakes and seats, and fix loose chains. A bike can hang from a bar on the pole for easy maneuvering. In addition, the front of the station includes a QR code that can be scanned by a smartphone to open an app with general/common bike repair instructions.
The Township Council will be recognizing Aiden and Troop 48 for his efforts at a future Council meeting.
