SAN DIEGO, CA, September 01, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Thanks to a generous gift from Pardee Homes, Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve recently unveiled its new bike repair station. The station will provide riders with equipment to fix their bikes and make needed adjustments while exploring Santee by bicycle. With biking's popularity continuing to grow in the region, the bike station provides a much-needed quick-fix station.
"We are dedicated to supporting the Santee community and are excited to provide residents and visitors with this helpful feature," said Jimmy Ayala, Division President Pardee Homes. "Given the trails and connectivity offered by our new Weston community, partnering with Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve to bring this bike station to Santee was a natural fit."
The bike station is another example of Pardee's commitment to the Santee community, which in recent years has included support for youth sports, Mission Trails Regional Park and the Santee School District Foundation, among others.
"Thousands of bikers visit Santee Lakes each year to enjoy the outdoors and explore the surrounding area," said Laura Koval, Director of Park and Recreation for Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve. "We appreciate Pardee Homes' willingness to partner with us and support important projects like this bike repair station that will serve Santee for many years."
The Weston (formerly Castlerock) master planned community is a 415-home residential community located just off State Route 52 and north of Mast Boulevard. The community has been designed to be respectful of the natural environment and emphasize open space, energy efficiency, habitat preservation and trail access. It will feature a two-mile trail providing connectivity to a new four-acre public park that will host another bike repair station. The Weston community is the result of more than 10 years of planning and collaboration between local cities, public agencies and community groups. Home building is currently underway at Weston and model homes are expected to open for sale in the last quarter of this year.
"This bike repair station is another step in advancing outdoor recreational access throughout San Diego County," said Executive Director of the San Diego Mountain Bike Association, Susie Murphy. "Santee is a prime location for outdoor recreational opportunities and this new equipment directly supports visitors and residents who want to enjoy the great outdoors in and around Santee."
The new bike repair station is mounted near the General Store located at Lake Five. The facility provides a useful platform that allows a bike to hang freely so a rider can perform a basic visual inspection or repairs, such as adjusting brakes and derailleurs or fixing a flat tire. The station also comes equipped with an air pump to inflate tires and several common tools needed for bike repairs, including wrenches, screwdrivers and tire levers. The tools are securely attached to the stand with stainless steel cables and tamper-proof fasteners to ensure the station's longevity.
