S.F. Giants: Valet Bike Parking 81 Games Per Year

Barry Bonds may almost have the home run record, but the San Francisco Giants have another milestone that is much more admirable: the first to have a free, convienent, attended bike parking service at all 81 of their home games.

As part of an arrangement with the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, you can bicycle to a Giants game at AT&T Park, check your bike with up to 200+ other fans, and go catch America's pastime. Kash, Valet Bike Parking Coordinator for SFBC, runs the operation and gives us the scoop. As you'll see, fans overwhelmingly endorse it.

A regulation passed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1999 states all events incurring a street closure require monitored bicycle parking if the event anticipates 2000 or more participants. This only makes sense in a city like New York, too. Why not encourage something like this at Madison Square Garden, Yankee or Shea Stadium? Or at the very least, some quality racks in a secure, protected location.

Bike to Shea

Let's go Mets! Let's go bikes!

The StreetFilms team cycled with over 100 baseball fanatics during Bike Week on an amazin' jaunt to Shea Stadium. The 4th annual ride was organized by the NYC Department of Transportation and the great spirits at Transportation Alternatives provided the valet bike parking.
