Free bike parking at weekend festivals

There are no excuses to not ride your bike to a Detroit festival this weekend.

Detroit International Jazz Festival

From the Wheelhouse Detroit web site:

This weekend, we will happily park your bike for no charge at theĀ Detroit International Jazz Festival. Bike parking is at the intersection of Woodward & Larned, smack dab in the middle of the festivities, which stretch from Hart Plaza to Campus Martius.

Festival hours are 4 to 11 p.m. on Friday; noon to 11:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday; and noon to 7:30 P.M. on Monday. See you there!

Arts, Beats, and Eats

KLM Bikes is providing free bike at two locations for the Art, Beats, and Eats event in Royal Oak. This is the easiest and cheapest way to get to the festival. The spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis. It looked like many people were taking advantage of this service.

The locations are:

  • South side: Washington St. Just south of Lincoln, 800 parking slots
  • North side: Washington Near Second Avenue, 1,000 parking slots

The Hamtramck Festival is this weekend as well. Though it doesn’t seem to have valet bike parking, it does have urban camping. How cool is that?
