Celebrate Brooklyn With Valet Bike Parking

Thinking of riding your bike to Celebrate Brooklyn this summer but worried about finding a safe and reliable place to lock up? Look no further than the Celebrate Brooklyn Bike Zone, where friendly volunteers from Transportation Alternatives will take great care of your ride (for free!) while you enjoy the sights and sounds

The Bike Zone is

entrance, within steps of the bandshell. Check out this handy map [PDF] to scout your best route.
