Bike Valet 


We’re helping make the region a cleaner, healthier, more livable and more prosperous place by enabling more people to choose bicycling for everyday travel. Our work includes advocacy, project review, technical assistance and community engagement. We’re also one of the only organizations in the Sacramento region to earn the Gold designation as a Bicycle Friendly Business from the League of American Bicyclists.


Bike Valet turns community events into bikeable destinations by providing turn-key valet bike parking services for event participants who arrive by bike (it’s like coat check for your bike). We park more than 15,000 bikes a year at 160+ community events for clients as varied as the Downtown Sacramento Partnership, The Golden 1 Center, Sacramento Republic FC, SactoMoFo, Sacramento Farm to Fork Festival, Capitol Beer Fest, TBD Festival and the Sacramento Rotary Club. Bike Valet is our most visible program.

$16/hr. hourly rate.

Bike Valet events occur seasonally with a schedule averaging 2-3 shifts per month (more depending on availability). Shifts typically last 4-6 hours, with the possibility of occasional overtime for longer events. Shifts include early morning, daytime, evening and late night events.

You’ll work mostly off-site at Bike Valet events in a variety of outdoor settings (parks, plazas, parking lots, trails, etc.) in a variety of weather. You’ll also occasionally work from SABA’s Bike Valet storage space and offices in downtown Sacramento.

In instances where you may use your own vehicle to transport Bike Valet equipment outside of the grid, we pay the current IRS mileage reimbursement for vehicle use off-site.

Bike Valet Leads report to the Bike Valet Program Manager, who will train you on all aspects of the Bike Valet program and SABA’s operation. Training will be on the job staffing Bike Valet events (paid).


SABA was founded in 1991 and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2003 (ID #37-1474544). We currently have one full-time employee and several part-time employees working on our Bike Valet, Bike MD and 529 Garage bike registration programs. We have fairly simple processes and we’re always striving to improve, so we will welcome your observations and common sense suggestions.

We operate from offices in downtown Sacramento. We work in a building shared with other cool nonprofits that is located a half-block south of the 12th Street light rail station, has a secured bike room, and is the first collection site for the nation’s first commercial program to convert food waste into vehicle fuel.
