Bike Valet

Hosting an event? Consider including a Bicycle Valet! 

What’s a Bike Valet?  

A bike valet is free, convenient and secure bicycle parking for event-goers.

Bike Valet

How does it work?

A bike valet operates similar to a coat check: you give your bike to valet staff and are given a numbered ticket. When it’s time to leave the event, you return to the bike valet station with your numbered ticket and get your bike back. Depending on the operator and the event, panniers, bags and helmets can sometimes be left with your bike when it’s parked.

Bike valet stations are often a great place to learn about cycling and sustainable transportation in North Vancouver and around the Lower Mainland. Bike maps, safe cycling guides, and tire pumps are often available on-site.

Benefits of bike valet services:

  • Encourage event attendees to use an alternate mode of transportation reducing motor vehicle trips and parking demand 
  • Provide secure parking for bikes and accessories and are safer than locking bikes to poles and fences
