The Bicycle Valet: off to a record-setting year!

We reached a new May record of 275 bikes parked at a Whitecaps game! This is only the beginning of the season, so we expect to knock that record out of the park as things heat up this summer!

 In May, it started to get busy at The Bicycle Valet! Between three Whitecaps games we also took care of bikes at the BMO Vancouver Marathon, BMO Walk So Kids Can Talk, and the Vancity AGM. As always we were at the Bike To Work Week Launch Party, and we had our first year at TEDx Stanley Park at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Also, we had our *always* legendary Volunteer Appreciation Party! BBQ and beer enjoyed by all!!
