The Bicycle Valet announces new logo design

The Bicycle Valet is very excited to announce that we have a new logo! Designed by the wonderful Kailani Sutton, this new logo moves past simply explaining what we do, and emphasizes that we do indeed offer a secure place to keep your cherished bicycle (skateboard/ stroller/ paddle board/ longboard/ push scooter/ kayak … anything active transportation!).

We’ve safely parked 125,345 bikes since 2006, never having lost one – we really are the safest place to park your bike! So, if you see this new logo around town, don’t worry, it’s still the same amazing Bicycle Valet, with a fresh new look.
