A friend of mine posted a picture on Facebook of this terminal and I decided to look more into it. If you’re into biking you will love this idea. The borough of Ville Marie has installed as a pilot project, self-service terminals to repair bicycles. Made in Québec, Biciborne is a bicycle repair station with an air pump and multiple tools. The pump is provided with an EVA tip compatible with all kinds of valves. The essential to repair or adjust a bicycle are attached by stainless steel cables to the terminal,  screwdriver, set of Allen keys, multi-functional wrench, adjustable wrench, and two tire levers.

There are not many of them around only 3 that I found.

  • Champs de Mars (in back of City Hall)
  • Place Émilie-Gamelin
  • McGill and de la Commune
