Bicycle Valet Volunteer

Organization Details
Organization Name: Bicycle Valet Winnipeg
Address: Winnipeg MB  R3L 0J9
Website: http://bicyclevaletwinnipeg.ca
Organizational Description: Passionate about Active Transportation?

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

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.
