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!

** BikeABQ 3rd Annual CYCLE TO BALLOON FIESTA Ride, Sunday, October 15, 2017 6:00 AM start

BikeABQ members Dusty and Gay will lead the ride from UNM Parking Lot Q on University near KNME along the Diversion Channel Bike Path north to the Bike Valet at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta Park leaving at 6:00 AM. The ride will take about one hour and is 8 miles long.

For riders who want a shorter option, a midpoint meeting place to join the group will be where the Diversion Channel Bike Path goes under Singer Blvd., near the intersection of Singer and Chappell. Meet the group there at 6:30 AM.

At the end of the ride, bicycles are parked free and protected at the Balloon Fiesta Bike Valet.
All ride participants must have head and taillights, helmets, and water.
BikeABQ volunteers will be needed to help stop traffic (which should be minimal at 6:15 AM) on Indian School Road and to act as caboose riders to trouble shoot and help move the group along.

Please join us and bring your family and friends. This will be great fun for the bicycle riders and a grand adventure, especially for the young participants.  Questions?  Plan to join us?  Please email: RSVP@BikeABQ.org
