Help park bikes at the Hideout's Block Party and Onion's AV Fest

Hello Active Trans Fans! Interested in helping a good cause on Friday, September 14 or Saturday the 15th. Active Trans is looking for volunteers to support its Bike Valet program. Active Trans will be providing free, secure bike parking at the Hideout's Block Party and Onion's AV fest, which have united this year for one even greater event.

As usual, our volunteer shifts are four hours long. Everyone who volunteers will get a free t-shirt from one of this summer's Active Trans events and a free meal. We can use an extra hand for the whole event, but have the greatest need on Saturday morning 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. and later that evening from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m.

Are you available and willing to lend us a hand? Please contact Bike Valet Manager Ed via email at Thanks and hope to see you there!
