Art Council of New Orleans Hosts Bicycle Valet at Spring Markets
Wednesday, Feb 22, 2012
The Arts Council of New Orleans has partnered with Bike Easy to offer free bicycle parking at their monthly markets all spring. Mïa Vollkommer, Art Market Manager, was pleased to bring Bike Easy on as a partner, using funds that were to go to vehicle expenses.
“How great is it that we can make a difference for bicycle riders who visit the market with money budgeted for vehicle expenses!” Vollkommer said. “We see bicycle riders walking their bicycles down the rows of vendors and it’s great to be able to offer a safer, convenient and free option so that these customers can enjoy all the market has to offer.”
Bike Easy is pleased to offer this popular program at the Arts Market of New Orleans this year, expanding from several bicycle valet programs last year at the Blues and BBQ Festival, Po Boy Fest and others.
“With forward-thinking partners like The Arts Council, bicycle riding in the region is bound to become easier, safer and more fun,” said Jamie Wine, Executive Director for Bike Easy.
All questions and inquiries can go to the Bicycle Valet Cooridnator JJ Smith.
