Despite what temperatures may indicate (we’re having a heat wave in Los Angeles and it snowed last week in the midwest), spring really is on its way! With the start of National Bike Month we thought we’d bring you some new cycling accessories to get you and your family ready for two-wheel transportation:
National Bike Month Notes:
Whether you bike to work or school; ride to save money or time; pump those pedals to preserve your health or the environment; or simply to explore your community, National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride.
Cool Bike Accessories and Other Cycling Stuff
With all the attention on healthy lifestyles and the importance of exercise–Bike Month might be just what we all need to get in shape and save gas money at the same time.
One cool take on promoting cycling is the Bike Valet in Santa Monica offering free valet-style parking of bicycles at the Sunday Main Street Farmer’s Market, Pier Twilight Dance Series and other public events throughout the City. Residents and visitors ride their bicycles to events, give their bicycle to a bike valet attendant and receive a claim check for their bicycle. The bicycles are then parked in the valet area and monitored by attendants. When a customer is ready to claim their bicycle, the bike valet takes the claim check and retrieves the bicycle.
Also in uber-hip Santa Monica is Bike Main Street every Friday night. Visit Main Street merchants on your bicycle and park it for free with the Bike Valet from 5:00 p.m. to Midnight (bike Valet located on the east side of Main Street between Ashland and Pier Avenue). Gotta love LA.
