Marin County Bicycle Parking

MCBC-staffed Valet Bicycle Parking shows your commitment to reducing vehicle use and making non-motorized transportation a priority. It puts you clearly on the side of caring for the quality of life in Marin County – demonstrating a family and eco-friendly means of getting to your event. People arriving by bicycle enjoy easy access, rolling up near your entrance and having our Bike Valets carefully stow their precious ride. We ensure that bicycles parked at your event will be safe.

Valet bicycle parking safeguards patrons’ bicycles in one compact location. Without a special place for bicycle parking, people end up parking their bikes on sidewalks, locking them to sign-posts and other streetscape objects. In addition to being more visually appealing, consolidated bicycle parking prevents “trip and fall” accidents which may occur if a bicycle is left in the middle of a sidewalk.

We’ll get the word out to our members and supporters – promoting the date and bike-friendly option at no extra cost!

MCBC promotes all events with Full Service Valet Bike Parking on our Events Calendar, through our email bulletin with over 5,000 subscribers, via marinbike.org news articles and through our popular social media stream on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
