About Bicycle Valet Winnipeg

Bicycle Valet Project Manager

Bicycle Valet Winnipeg provides a temporary bicycle parking facility that can be set up for events large and small. It is offered to event organizers who wish to provide supervised bike parking for their patrons. This can significantly reduce traffic and parking congestion and encourage Active Transportation use in Winnipeg.

There is no charge to cyclists for this service. Bicycles are stored in a supervised compound and need not be locked. Personal equipment such as helmets and backpacks can also be left with the bicycles. In fact we will also accept skateboards, strollers, chariot trailers, or any other Active Transportation equipment.

The convenience of this free service can bring in patrons who might otherwise be deterred by the expense and hassle of other forms of transportation. Having a safe place to park their “wheels” can make the difference between attending an event or staying home.
