About Bike Valet
When you’ve got somewhere to go, biking should be an easy choice to make. Whether you want to avoid traffic to a big event, or just like riding your bike, our Valet Bicycle Parking will park your bike and keep it secure – all for free! We park and monitor over 15,000 bikes at 100+ events annually, helping people and event spaces alike support sustainable transportation in our city. With our 20-year positive reputation, hire us for an upcoming event or attend an upcoming valet parked event to experience it yourself!
Bike Valet at the Giants
We offer free Valet Bicycle Parking at Oracle Park for all Giants regular season home games, as well as select Oracle Park special events. Find us on the south side of the ballpark by the water. Valet opens two hours before the game starts and closes thirty minutes after each game. Note: Usage of valet is increasing, so arrive early and be sure to bring a U-lock in case valet reaches capacity. If needed, public bike racks are located along the walkway between the Marina & 2nd St. gate and King St. gate.
Hire Us For Your Event
By offering free valet bicycle parking at your event, you’re supporting sustainable transportation alternatives and making it easier than ever for event-goers to get to your event. Plus, encouraging more people to bike to your event helps lower traffic congestion and reduces stress over parking availability.
As per SF Administration Code, Section 2.76, monitored bicycle parking is mandatory for events requiring a street closure and with an anticipated number of participants greater than 2,000. While we’re not the only bike parking solution, we pride ourselves on being the best one.
Learn how you can hire our service to provide your guests with reliable, free bike parking that will set your event apart from the rest. As an added bonus, your event will be covered by 2 million dollars in liability insurance, and promoted as part of our social media and newsletter for bike valet to over 50k followers.
Frequently Asked Questions
What can I park at valet?
We park cargo and electric bikes, personal kick or electric scooters, skateboards, and other small personal mobility devices with wheels. As we approach capacity, however, bicycles take priority. We cannot accept any short-term rented bikes or scooters. Please park them in the manner advised by each individual service. If you would like to know about a unique situation, please email our office.
What should I bring to bike valet?
We strongly recommend bringing a u-lock. Although our lot is secure and attended at all times and a lock is not needed at Valet itself, we may be at capacity (and you might want to stop somewhere for a snack after the event).
Additionally, we are happy to check select gear (helmets, locks and panniers only please). Because we can’t inventory your accessories, we can’t be responsible for them, but anything securely attached to your bike will be safe. However, at Giants Games, per Oracle Park policy, we DO NOT check bags of any kind.
What if I can’t get back in time to pick up my bike?
You must retrieve your bike by our valet closing time, which is typically 30 minutes after the end of an event. For Giants games, we cannot be responsible for bikes left at Oracle Park after the close of valet, so we urge you to be prompt in exiting the stadium. If you are unable to pick up your bike after an event, you must contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I support this awesome service?
To help sustain and expand this free program, you can make a one-time or recurring donation to the SF Bicycle Coalition, or better yet, become a member! Another way you can help out is by spreading the word about our service to your networks, and ask event hosts and spaces to hire our bike valet service for their events. Thank you!
