Bike Repair Station Installed on the Allegheny River Valley Trail

April 1, 2021—Olean— William J. Aiello, Mayor of the City of Olean, is pleased to announce the completion of a bike repair station on the Allegheny River Valley Trail near the West State Street crossing. The station includes a water fountain, a tire pump and a bike work stand complete with numerous tools for bicycle repairs.

“In July 2020 Alderman Paul Gonzalez suggested that that the Trail could use a repair station and the Common Council thought it was an excellent idea,” Mayor Aiello said. Alderman Gonzalez and DPW Director Bob Ring worked with Chris Piaggi, owner of the local bike shop UpCycle, to design the station. Mr. Piaggi was very enthusiastic about the project and donated the work stand.”

“The City of Olean Department of Public Works prepared the area, ran the water lines, funded the water fountain and air pump, and installed the repair station,” Mayor Aiello continued.

“The Allegheny River Valley Trail is one of our region’s greatest assets,” Mayor Aiello added. “Many residents use it on a daily basis and the new repair station will give them a place to quickly fix their bike or get hydrated. I am pleased that Alderman Gonzalez and Mr. Ring worked with Mr. Piaggi and I thank UpCycle for their very generous donation.
