Bike Valet in Albuquerque

ADD FREE BIKE PARKING TO YOUR NEXT EVENT

Bike valet is a great way to encourage bicycling by providing free secure bike parking. You have probably seen bike valet at events like Balloon Fiesta, Summerfest, Globalquerque, State Fair, and many more. In partnership with local organizations and businesses like Esperanza Community Bike Shop, Sport Systems, and NM Touring Society, BikeABQ has been supporting bike valet in our community for years.
Did you know that anyone can provide bike valet for any event? BikeABQ can help you organize a successful bike valet by providing guidance and resources, helping you get racks, and promoting your event. This document will help you understand what bike valet is, how it works, and how to bring it to your next event. If you are interested and have other questions or want to get started, please contact board@bikeabq.org.

What is Bike Valet?

Bike valet is temporary secure bike parking that can be set up for any event. Bike valet should be operated by volunteers or paid staff who check in bikes, store them safely, return bikes to people when they are ready to leave, and ensure that all of the bikes are safe and make it back to their owners!

How the New HAWK Pedestrian / Bicyclist Crossing Signal Works

Help spread the word about how the new HAWK signal works. It’s unfamiliar, so the more people that know about how it’s supposed to be used, the safer it can be for everyone!

2018 Bicycling Community Meet & Greet

Tuesday, January 30, 2018

6:00pm – 7:30pm (doors open at 5:30pm)

Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum

Pugash Hall (upstairs)

No entrance or parking fees to attend

Please join us for the 2018 Bicycling Community Meet & Greet on Tuesday, January 30, 2018, 6pm – 7:30pm, at the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum. Doors open at 5:30pm to check-in.

Who is the Bicycling Community?  There are many elements in addition to Riders. Planning, Engineering, Constructing, Maintaining, Legislating & allocating funding, Advocating, Organizing, and more are also important parts.  All are invited!

The intent of the Bicycling Community Meet & Greet is for members from all of the various aspects of the community to come together.

There will be no speeches, no forum, no formal Q &A.  Instead, an MC will make brief introductions. Then attendees can  mix & mingle – meet & greet – enjoy light snacks & beverages – and peruse information about the bicycling community.

This will be a time to connect and enjoy sharing company.  Then, in the following months, as projects, ideas for updates and improvements, and events are considered, the Bicycling Community can work together, hopefully with better channels of communication and understanding.

If you would like to have your group’s information included as a flyer, business card, small display, poster, etc., in the info area of the Meet & Greet, please email  Ann@BikeABQ.org  for more details.

If you plan to attend, an email to RSVP@BikeABQ.org will be appreciated.

There is ample free parking for motor vehicles.

If you ride your bike, bring your lock – there will be a designated area to lock up in.
