Trouble parking at the Art and Wine Festival? Next year, bring your bike!

“What a great idea to include an attended bike parking space at the Art and Wine Festival in Los Altos! This service made it a pleasure to come by bicycle. Thanks to the GreenTown Los Altos volunteers who very graciously manned the space.” – Curtis Abbott

On July 14 and 15, GreenTown hosted a bike valet for festival attendees, making bike parking easy and convenient. Seventeen smiling volunteers parked 320 bikes, skateboards, strollers and scooters, during the two-day festival, up 17% from last year. Six parking spaces were occupied by the booth and the bike parking. A shout out goes to Bicycle Outfitter for lending us bike racks and thanks to the Los Altos Village Association for offering this service at the Festival.

Just two weeks prior, GreenTown supported Los Altos Stride and Ride with a bike valet, parking 51 bicycles. Easy bike parking at events shifts the convenience balance between taking the car and taking the bike. Our next event is the Fall Festival. Consider taking your bike and parking it at the GreenTown bike valet.
