Here’s a new one (to me anyway): valet parking for your mountain bike. Apparently the Iowa Outdoor Wellness Adventure (I.O.W.A.) offered valet bike parking at their debut event last week. Bikers exchanged their bikes for a claim ticket while volunteers “parked” the bikes in a secure area. I dunno, for some reason I would still feel more comfortable giving my car to a valet than my bike – why is that?
Aside from the valet bike parking gimmick, it sounds like I.O.W.A put on a good event with a MTB skills clinic and bike fitting help. The group claims central Iowa has great mountain bike trails and I guess anything is possible. If you made it out to the event drop us a line and let us know how it went!
