Voted Best Valet Service for Bikes, Balloon Fiesta’s Bike Valet helps all cyclists enjoy the event without the hassle of traffic.
This year, the Bike Valet service will be located on the Balloon Museum grounds, right next to the La Cueva Bicycle Path. This location is a couple hundred yards further east from the old location and will make it easier for cyclists to line up as they wait for their ticket.In this month’s Inside the Basket, we had the chance to learn about the history of the Bike Valet and its importance to Balloon Fiesta from coordinator and volunteer David Candelaria.
