Bike Valet turns a community event into a bikeable destination. It works like coat check at a club: arrive at our kiosk and exchange your bike for a claim ticket, and we park your bike in our secure, fenced compound. Since we’re the only ones who handle the bikes and access the compound, your bike is safe.
Return later, show us your ticket, and we bring you your bike. It’s fast, easy, and secure and it’s free for any event attendee arriving by bike. Our staff and volunteers make bike parking safe and secure so you can relax and enjoy yourself.
In 2019 we parked close to 10,000 bikes at more than 250 events attended by more than 250,000 people, including the Friday Night Concerts in the Park series, East Sac Pops in the Park series, the Farm to Fork Festival, Sac Republic FC home games, SactoMoFo Food Truck Mania events, Midtown Farmers Market, West Coast Brew Fest, Amgen Tour of California, Crocker Art Mix, and at Golden 1 Center events.
If we assume that each bike travels an average of 1 mile in each direction—and replaces a trip by car—that translates to 20,000 miles traveled or nine tons of carbon pollutants kept out of the atmosphere (and everyone’s lungs). Bike Valet is our most immediate and impactful program.

Event organizers choose SABA Bike Valet because it attracts attendees who travel by bike and sends an environmentally-friendly message to everyone who attends as well as to passers-by. They also know our reputation for doing it right—we provide all the gear, staff and volunteers to make bike parking happen smoothly and efficiently.
