Bicycle parking rolls in event attendees

Bicycle parking at the Pro Cycling Challenge
The City's MetroRides provided bicycle valet parking service at eight events throughout the past summer where nearly 900 bicycles were securely parked. Event participants who took advantage of this innovative service could enjoy these community events without having to worry about finding a parking space or carry around locks, helmets or other bicycling gear. Using the City's Bicycle Tax fund, the City invested in signs and mobile event-style bike parking (lightweight and flexible to meet the needs of different venues) to make it all possible. Event planners can provide this service at their event next year by contacting Deb Spinato at or call her at 719-385-5276.
