Bike Valet Parking at Reston Festival a SuccessAround 125 people parked their bikes at the free bike valet parking provided by FABB at the Reston Festival last weekend. We were open from 10am to 7pm and we parked 87 bicycles on Saturday. At one point there were about 60 bikes in the racks which were provided by bikes@vienna. FABB volunteers were there the entire time, assisted by a Festival volunteer, Pat Turner of Bike Loudoun, and a Bike Lane employee.
Cyclists were very enthusiastic about the service. They could leave their bikes and wander the festival. The parking was located inside a vacant retail space next to The Bike Lane. Thanks to Boston Properties for making the space available. Thanks also to WABA for providing the valet parking supplies. And thanks to the Reston Festival for supporting FABB and WABA and promoting biking to the festival.
