Have you ever ridden your bike to an event only to find that there's nowhere to lock it up? Bike valets to the rescue!
I spotted this bike valet service at Atlanta's Sweetwater 420 Fest. My husband and I walked to the show, but it looks like lots of folks took advantage of the convenient, secure bike parking.
The bike valet is a service of the Atlanta Bike Coalition, and the money they earn goes to keep the bike advocacy organization going. They can park up to 100 bikes in a station, and attendants are keeping an eye on the bikes at all times. Bike theft is pretty rampant here in Atlanta, so that set of eyeballs on your wheels is super reassuring.
I love the idea of catering to cyclists instead of motorists. Does your city have a bike valet service anywhere? Tell us about it in the comments!
