Big thanks to Fred Smith, longtime member of Bike Athens, for installing the tool set for the new bike repair station at Boulevard Woods. Now, not only can you inflate tires with the air pump, you can use the Philips and flat head screwdrivers, Allen and box wrenches and tire levers to adjust brakes and derailleurs and perform other basic bike repairs and maintenance tasks.
