Pedal Instead

Our bike corrals—imagine a coat check for bicycles—make free, secure bicycle parking available for cyclists at festivals and other events. Corrals help reduce event congestion and educate the general public about bicycling for transportation!

See below for where we’ll be, then check out our Parking FAQ and Volunteering FAQ to get involved. Contact us to sponsor a corral or hire us for your event!
