Riding your bike during the Grand Avenue Bridge detour? (Don’t forget—it starts Monday. Although how could you forget?) Roaring Fork Transit Authority maintains two Fix-It Stations along the Rio Grande Trail. If you run into trouble on the stretch of trail in Carbondale, you’ll have help nearby. Walk your bike to the Catherine Bridge Trail Head or Carbondale Town Hall, where the two RFTA-maintained stations are located. RFTA intends to install two additional stations at other locations in the future.
