What is a bike valet?
BECOME A SPONSOR
Bike valet is like a coat check...for your bike! Our staff and volunteers set up a secure area of bike racks, and offer free valet service to event goers who arrive by bike. Patrons receive a branded claim ticket and leave their bikes with trained staff. Our bike valet brings convenience and peace of mind to event patrons, and provides a secure, orderly site plan for event planners. The service is free to users, and a great, feel-good component to some of Alachua County's premiere outdoor events.
Is the bike valet a free service?
Our bike valet employs trained part-time staff and involves a lot of coordination and high-quality outreach and education materials. Because of this, we charge a reasonable fee to event organizers, which covers our costs and allows us to offer this affinity-building service free to event patrons. Most of our contracts are covered by third-party sponsors. If you have an event but no budget for a bike valet, we can work together to find a sponsor to cover the costs.
Each sponsor will have their logo displayed on the official ASA Bike Valet Banner during use. Your logo will also be displayed on our website on the Bike Valet section and an announcement on our Facebook page for new or renewing sponsors. For sponsors who sign up before volunteer t-shirt order, your logo will be placed on the rear of Bike Valet Volunteer t-shirts as well. Finally we will provide free bike valet at no additional charge for up to 4 hours at one company event during the year within four miles of the center of the city.
Is a bike valet right for your event or brand?
Most likely, yes! If you are interested in sponsoring or offering a bike valet to patrons at your upcoming concert, street fair, festival, business entrance, or elsewhere, please contact us and we will be in touch with you soon.
