Bike to the Great Tucson Beer Festival

Living Streets Alliance (LSA) is pleased to provide free bicycle valet parking at the Great Tucson Beer Festival from 6-10pm this Saturday, October 1st at the Kino Sports North Complex, 2817 E. Ajo Way. This free, secure bicycle parking service is sponsored by Sun Sounds, a local organization that bridges the information gap to current print media by providing audio access to people who cannot read because of a disability. The Great Tucson Beer Festival is an evening of beer tasting, food provided by local eateries, and entertainment with all proceeds to benefit Sun Sounds of Arizona.

Organizers of the Great Tucson Beer Festival encourage attendees to bike to the event, conveniently located near some of Tucson’s best bikeways and bicycle paths. Access to the Kino Sports North Complex from the north is possible along Aviation Bikeway and from the south using the Julian Wash Greenway portion of The Loop. LSA’s bicycle valet parking area will be located right at the entrance to the festival, where LSA staff will provide parking and security for the duration of the event, 6pm to 10pm, Saturday October 1st.

The Living Streets Alliance Bike Valet service is one way LSA encourages the use of bicycles for transportation and “greens” local events by providing secure bike parking for festivals, fairs, concerts, sporting events, neighborhood events, and more. The service includes on-duty valet attendants to park and monitor bikes during the event, and lightweight, mobile, event racks that can park up to 100 bikes reducing the carbon footprint of an event and negative traffic impacts on the surrounding neighborhoods.

Living Streets Alliance’s Bike Valet program is underwritten by Pima County’s Clean Air Program, the City of Tucson’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program, and is sustained by event organizers or sponsors who in turn make the service free to attendees. The sponsor of the 2016 Great Tucson Beer Festival bike valet service is Sun Sounds.

The Living Streets Alliance Bike Valet program is available to all festival and event organizers interested in “greening” their events. Quotes for event organizers are available by contacting Living Streets Alliance at 520-261-8777 or email bikevalet@livingstreetsalliance.org
