Hi cycling people :) I installed and maintain a free bicycle repair station on a cycle lane near were we live (rural Denmark).

Am always interested in what cycling service infrastructure is available elsewhere, so if you have something: share it here! :-)


@Pepijn @mastobikes This is wonderful, and it leads me to question why a country lane in rural Denmark should be better equipped than the city I live in. 🤔

@kgerloff I think it's because I'm trying to construct the world I want to be in, and there it really helps that Danish society seems to be set up to facilitate citizens when they take ownership of something.*

On the cyclelane itself: it's actually a busy road as in summer all the German and Dutch tourists use it to drive to Legoland.

*and is rich enough to do so.. ;-)

@Pepijn Here in Germany, they´d probably tear down the repair station because it lacks a permit by some authority nobody´s ever heard of.

(Perhaps I´m being overly pessimistic. I hope I am.)


@kgerloff well, here in Denmark I did have to get a building permit for the foundation, an access to land permit and a "can 4x5 meter of woodland be converted into infrastructure" land use chance permit.

Took three months and an hour of work (45min of those to make a professional looking overview map in MS Paint on a laptop with a touchpad) :-D
