image011The 22nd annual Bike to Work Day corporate challenge winners will each receive the honor of their name placed on a Dero Bike Fixit stand, according to a Mountain Metropolitan Transit news release.

Five winners will be selected based on participation relative to company or organization size. The five stands will be placed throughout the Colorado Springs area, adjacent to local trails and parks. The Fixit includes all the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance, including an air pump, phillips and flat head screwdrivers, allen wrenches, a headset wrench, a pedal wrench, box wrenches and two tire levers. The Fixit also features a QR code that connects cyclists to instructional videos that walk you through basic repairs.
