It’s Riverfest time in La Crosse, Wisconsin and that means a weekend full of fun events for the whole family.  What’s the best way to get down to Riverfest and enjoy the festivities? By bicycle of course! Why bother with the cost and hassle of driving down to the festival area when you can bike down and have front door valet bicycle parking? Valet bike parking?

For the second year the Driftless Region Bicycle Coalition will be providing bicycle valet parking right at the entrance to Riverside Park during Riverfest. Just ride on down, drop your bike off and it will be placed in a secure and monitored storage area by DRBC volunteers. When you’re done, just stop by and pick up your bike. No more struggling and fighting to find a parking space for your car and it’s FREE!

The valet bike parking will be available on:

Friday 11am – 10pm
Saturday 11am – 10pm
Sunday 11am – 11pm (or for 30 minutes after the fireworks end)

Why do we do it? It is all part of the DRBC’s commitment to making our communities more bicycle friendly. With the lack of significant amounts bicycle parking in our communities, this is a simple way for us to encourage more people to attend events like Riverfest. Stay tuned to here to our website, sign up for our newsletter/email list or follow our Facebook page for information on future events where we will be hosting valet bicycle parking.

Want to have some fun?

We still have a few slots open for volunteers to help out at the valet bike parking station, trust us it ca be a lot of fun and people really appreciate you. We are asking our members and friends to volunteer for shifts of 2.5 hours during Riverfest. We will have a shade tent, chairs and some refreshments available for volunteers! Go here to volunteer. Just fill out the form and then select the hours you want to come have fun.
