August 2018 The Sparta Ambassador fdg Bike Station Updates Earlier this spring the city announced the procurement of bike stations. With local grants from the City Tourism Board and a generous donation from U.S. Silica, the Sparta Parks & Rec department were able to purchase four bike repair stations. These stations will be placed throughout the city, allowing cyclists to make minor repairs to their bicycles on their own. The designated locations for the bike stations include: The Elroy-Sparta Trail, Amundsen Park, Deke Slayton Museum, and Meadowview School. Last week, volunteers from U.S. Silica poured a cement foundation and set the bike repair stations located at Amundsen Park, The Elroy-Sparta Trail, and Meadowview School. In the next week they will be working on finishing the bike repair station located at the Deke Slayton Museum. Thank you to U.S. Silica and the City of Sparta Tourism Committee, and the City of Sparta Parks and Rec Department.
