• Blue Course Path – Circleville Road to Bristol Avenue

New Bike Repair Stations

Ferguson Township Public Works recently installed new bike repair stations on the Tudek Park and Science Park Road bike paths.

The stations were suggested by Ferguson Township Board of Supervisors Chair Steve Miller and approved by the board. Each station includes a concrete pad for working, a rack for hanging the bike, a basic bike repair tool kit, and tire pump. 

They join 11 other bike repair stations in the Centre Region — four in State College and seven on the Penn State campus.
