We will have THREE locations open!
The Bicycle Valet is open from 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM at Sunset Beach at two locations.
The Bicycle Valet is open from 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM at King George Secondary.
Get ready for Vancouver’s annual Pride Festival at Sunset Beach this year, bringing together the whole community for a day of celebration! Find us on either side of the festivities, and also at King George Secondary for the Pride Parade!
Pro Tips: Bring layers for all kinds of weather and you can leave anything extra with us at The Bicycle Valet on your bikes! Don’t forget your water bottle, of course.
Find Us: We are two locations on Sunset Beach, one on either side of the festivities. If you are coming into downtown off Burrard Bridge exit left onto Pacific Street, then turn almost immediately left down Thurlow towards the beach. You’ll hit Beach Ave and can follow a path that cuts from Thurlow to the beachfront. You’ll see us on your right by the Roller Rink! (Read more below to see maps of where exactly we’ll be.)
The Free Ride is over for Granville Island bike thieves, according to The Vancouver Sun:
“Thieves have had a free ride on the island for years, taking advantage of bike racks installed in low traffic areas and poor cyclist awareness. More than 150 bikes were nabbed from just two blocks of the island in the last four years, and that’s only looking at thefts that were reported to police. They were among 10,000 stolen citywide in just four-and-a-half years”.
“The tourist hot spot and beloved haunt for many Vancouver residents has become the riskiest place to park a bike in the city, with higher theft numbers there than any other location citywide”.
Thankfully, the Bicycle Valet is here to help decrease bike theft on Granville Island. Click the link below to watch the video from The Vancouver Sun and read more!
