Eagle Scout project yields bike repair stations

The next time your bike breaks down on the Ahnapee Trail in Kewaunee County, Scouts USA members from Troop 1042 in Luxemburg have you covered. Carson Miller and Max Gruhlke of Luxemburg installed eight bike repair stations at different trailheads and parking areas along the trail in Kewaunee County as a part of their quest to earn the rank of Eagle Scout, Scout USA’s highest honor. Attached to the posts are some of the most common tools needed when a bike may possibly break down. Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Director Dave Myers says partnering with the scouts on the project benefits the entire community.

The installed bike repair stations are also a cost savings for the county. Similar bike repair stations available online can cost as much as $2,000 uninstalled. Scouts looking to achieve their Eagle award must complete a service project, earn at least 21 merit badges (14 of which are required), and be an active member in the unit, among other requirements.
