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?
