BIKE VALET Coming to Coconut Grove Arts Festival

GMNCGAFGreen Mobility Network is excited to be partnering with Coconut Grove Arts Festival to provide our hugely popular bike valet.  Our bike valet station will be located near the festival’s main entrance on McFarlane Rd.  Patrons are encouraged to avoid parking hassles and fees and instead take their bikes to the festival. If coming by transit, make sure to get off at the Coconut Grove metrorail station and head down 27th avenue (which just got a brand new bike lane!). Coconut Grove is a beautiful City of Miami neighborhood with a bike culture that continues to grow.  We are proud to aiding the festival in providing safe and effective parking solutions.

If you are interested in volunteering in bike valet, please email info@greenmobilitynetwork.org.

“The Deering Seafood Festival is made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Tourist Development Council, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.”

Check out this video from NBC 6 South Florida where Roxanne Vargas previews the 9th annual Deering Seafood Festival! Roxanne talks to Dan Yglesias, Chair of the Deering Seafood Festival and Samir Canaan, Executive Chef of Truluck’s Seafood, Steak & Crab House.

Deering Festival valet a success

What a day we had on Sunday at the Deering Seafood Festival! We parked 268 bikes, a record turnout. Thanks to wonderful volunteers Marc and Judith Bell, Ana Browne and son Gustavo, Stuart Grant, August Neal, and Eric Tullberg for their generous gifts of time and energy. They were a pleasure to work with. And August had an interesting thought: imagine all those riders had driven to Deering — and parked along Old Cutler Road. Who would have liked that? So say a word of thanks to valet sponsor Heritage House, in Pinecrest. Better yet, go shop there.

Green Mobility Network's bike valet at Deering Estate

Here we are busy right before the midday rush, when the racks filled to capacity just as early festival-goers started heading home. Our new location was larger than before, and just right for the need. Thanks, Deering Foundation!
