IT WORKS LIKE A COAT CHECK
FOR BICYCLES


Passionate About Active Transportation?


Bicycle Valet Winnipeg's aim is to work with event promoters to offer a Bicycle Valet at events to reduce traffic and parking congestion and encourage Active Transportation use in Winnipeg. Having a safe place to park their "wheels" will encourage people to choose an active lifestyle and increase the use of Winnipeg's growing Active Transportation infrastructure.

With the support of our sponsors and event promoters, we will continue to provide this free service to all Active Transportation users.

A Bicycle Valet is for more than just bicycles, if it's Active Transportation, we'll park it! This includes bicycles, trailers & strollers, skateboards, skates, pogo sticks, etc.


WHAT IS BICYCLE VALET?
It's Like a Coat Check for Bicycles!


What is a Bicycle Valet?

→ It’s like a coat check for bicycles – completely hassle-free and secure!

How does it work?

→ You give us your bike and we give you a claim stub. After the event, you bring back the stub and we return your bike. Parking your bike is free!

Do I need a lock?

→ We ask that you do not lock your bicycle. The site is secure and attended at all times.

Is it safe?

→ Yes. The valet is attended at all times. No one but Bicycle Valet staff are allowed inside the compound. However, it’s up to you to keep your ticket safe.

Can I leave my stuff with my bike?

→ Yes. Anything securely attached to your bike will be safe.

How much does it cost?

→ It’s free to use but don’t forget to let event organizers know how important the service is to you!

Will there be delays checking in and out?

→ There may be a short line when you show up. Our Valets work hard to get your bike parked or returned to you as quickly as possible!

How about my trailer, skates or jogging stroller?

→ Yes. We’ll park anything electric assisted or human powered. Sorry, we don’t park scooters, or anything with an engine.

What if I can’t get back in time to pick up my bike?

→ When you take your claim check, you’re agreeing to our service terms. If you’re not back to pick up your bike 30 minutes after the event has ended, we will secure your bike and you will have to come pick it up.
