Long Description:
This deluxe public work stand is located northeast of mile marker 11 on the Blackstone River Bikeway at the I-295 Visitor's Center property and adjacent to the bike path in Lincoln, Rhode Island. The parking area at the front of the building is the most convenient official entryway to the path by this equipment. This offshoot section has steep inclines between the Visitor's Center entry point and the main bikeway down along the river.

This red and black station features an air pump, wheel chock, a pair of horizontal lifting bars, and several tools tethered to stainless steel cables:

Phillips & standard screwdrivers
Steel core tire levers (2)
Headset/pedal wrench
8/10mm cone wrench
9/11mm cone wrench
Torx T-25
Hex key set

The Blackstone Visitor's Center is a 9,700 square foot colonial post and beam structure and has clean (indoor!) public restrooms open Monday - Friday, 7:00am - 3:30pm. Originally designed as a highway rest center -- but currently (2018) offering no comfort amenities aside from restrooms and outdoor picnic benches (...long story...) -- there are parking spaces for 120 cars, and several parking places for commercial trucks. An electric vehicle charging station is available while enjoying the Blackstone River State Park or bike path.

An additional repair station is located at the Captain Wilbur Kelly House Museum in Lincoln between mile markers 10.5 and 11.
