Let us green your next event by providing a bicycle valet service to your attendees!
The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition offers secure and easy-to-use bike parking at events. Too often, large events quickly run out of bicycle rack space for those who choose to bike to avoid traffic. By providing a bicycle valet at your next event, you can reduce the event's impact on traffic congestion and carbon emissions and give people more transportation options.
Secure, Simple, and Environmentally Friendly!
The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition provides secure and easy bike parking for festivals, fairs, concerts, sporting events, and more! Valet bicycle parking is a great way to green your event by making it simple for festival goers to quickly and easily park their bikes.
The service includes an on-duty valet attendant to park and maintain bikes during the event. Mobile bike racks allow the bike valet attendant to set up the racks in a convenient location to maximize visibility and ease of use, as well as security.
ABC can park up to 250 bikes at full capacity (many more, for events where cyclists are coming and going), thereby reducing the carbon footprint of an event and negative traffic impacts on the surrounding neighborhoods, and providing a healthy way for event attendees to arrive.
The service is funded by festival organizers or sponsors, who in turn make the service free to attendees. Event organizers are responsible for publicizing the service to attendees to maximize use, and for providing a secure and convenient location to set up the bike racks. ABC provides signage to direct attendees to the bike parking; valet attendants, including at least one paid staff at all times, as well as additional volunteers; and valet tickets so patrons may retrieve their bikes at the event’s end.
Each 10' long rack holds 8 - 10 bikes and takes up a footprint of 5 x 8 feet.
Please note that the racks alone do not provide secure unattended locking for event patrons – the most important part of our service is corralling and attending to the bikes for the event duration. (Long-term bike parking must be bolted or secured with pavers to prevent theft.)
Our helpful volunteers make bike valet even better! View our bike valet volunteer opportunities.
