4th Ave Street Fair – Bike Valet

It is coming. The 4th Ave Street Fair will be bringing in thousands and thousands of people for holiday shopping…and we only hope that a few of them decide to ride their bikes instead of looking for parking. That is because El Grupo will be providing FREE bike valet parking for all three days out at the fair. The event runs from 10am-6pm Friday Dec. 10th thru Sunday, Dec. 12th.

I will need EACH OF YOU RIDERS to sign up for at least 2 hours during the three days so that we can cover all the time. These can be together or separate. Keep in mind that you could help out after school on Friday if you live nearby, OR you could PLAN AHEAD and stay after practice on Saturday or Sunday. This is a “fairly” easy gig, as we take in, watch over, and return bicycles to their owners so they can enjoy the fair. You will get a chance to enjoy it as well. We are set up next to the Main Stage with live music all weekend on the east side of 4th Ave on 7th St, just blocks from the clubhouse.

PLEASE COMMENT with the times you want. First come, first served 🙂
