100,000 Bikes Safely Valeted!

100,000 Bikes Safely Valeted!

we_did_it

We did it! On Friday August 28 at Granville Island, The Bicycle Valet arrived at a big milestone: 100,000 bicycles parked since we opened for business in 2006. That’s a lot of bikes!

The lucky winner of the grand prize of a bicycle was Lizzie Goldman, who was visiting Vancouver from Washington DC. Talk about excited! And surprised! A big thank you to Reckless Bikes for donating the grand prize and Travel Smart, who provided a whole lot of great prizes for everybody who came to The Bicycle Valet on the day.

It’s been quite a ride for The Bicycle Valet, and we know it’s going to just keep getting bigger and better. The whole bicycle culture in the Lower Mainland has changed a lot (read: improved) over the last 8 years, and we are happy to be a part of this change. And no, we don’t think it will be 8 years before we park our 200,000th bicycle! Any guesses?

Fewer than 30 bikes to go!

Fewer than 30 bikes to go!

After a busy weekend, we have fewer than 30 bikes left to park before hitting the 100 000th mark!

This means we’ll be reaching the #bikevalet100k milestone this Thursday, August 28 at our regular Granville Island location (behind the Brewery)!

We’re going to be giving away a brand new bike from Reckless Bikes to the lucky 100 000th patron, and some incentives from TravelSmart as we count down!

So ride your bike down to Granville Island on Thursday for your chance to WIN, and for free and safe bicycle parking!
