Valet Bike Parking

Valet bike parking is one of many ways that SVBC encourages people to bike to public events. We provide valet bike parking at Levi’s Stadium, Stanford Home Football games, major bicycle races, as well as many other civic festivals and events. We are expanding our valet parking services and would love to provide this invaluable service at your event.

What is valet bike parking?
Valet bike parking is like a coat check for bicycles. Cyclists are issued tickets in exchange for their bikes and our staff guards them in a secure enclosure. Over the years, we have parked tens of thousands of bikes and have an excellent safety record.

Why valet bike park?

  • Give event attendees peace of mind – People don’t ride to events where they have to worry about their bikes being stolen or vandalized. A bike parking service ensures that even small bicycle accessories and lights will be safe.
  • Encourage safe cycling – We can advise event attendees on bike-friendly routes and other useful information for their next trip.
  • Reduce traffic congestion – Providing and promoting bike parking is a fantastic way to significantly reduce the number of cars coming to your event.
  • Get more people at your event – Many people will pass on an event if they know that parking will be a hassle. Secure bike parking is an easy solution. Bike parkers can offer a smile and information to attendees as they show up at your event and are trying to figure out where to go.
  • It’s fun!


Bike Parking at Your Event?

SVBC has been parking bikes at big events for years and we know how to handle all of the details of the service. Save your staff the hassle of dealing with it by hiring us to do it instead. SVBC carries $1 million in liability insurance and can list you as additionally insured. Certain events and organizations may qualify for special rates.

If you would like to feature Valet Bicycle Parking at your event, please see our Bike Parking Requirements (pdf) and our Bike Parking Questionnaire (pdf).

Volunteering to park bikes is a ton of fun! Sign up with some friends and make a date of it. Cyclists arriving at the event are always happy to see you and fun to talk to. Find upcoming opportunities to bike park on our Eventbrite page. Children ages 8 through 13 can volunteer with a minor consent form and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children ages 13 and up can volunteer without an adult, but still need to bring a completed minor consent form.
