Bike Valet has been operating for several years now, and our service has been used by thousands of people across Tāmaki Makaurau; from international sports events to local film screenings – we’ve proven our versatility.
And it’s not just a side-perk for an event – there are people who only came to events by bike because the bike valet was there. We provide security for attendees, and also demonstrate to passers-by that yes, you too could come here by bike!
If you don’t take it from us, take it from attendees and event organisers who have used the well loved service:
Auckland Writers Festival
“You are such a passionate advocate and enthusiast for the Bike Valet service and I would certainly like to see it on offer at the Auckland Writers Festival next year.”
– Kate Mere, Marketing and Development Manager, Auckland Writers Festival, 2023
MOTAT LIVE cycling day
“Bike Auckland’s Bike Valet service proved to be an amazing addition to MOTAT’s Cycling LIVE Day event! Staff from Bike Auckland were amazing with both visitors and MOTAT workers, they brought an amazing energy to our event and we here at MOTAT were honoured to have Bike Auckland present with us. I would highly recommend hiring their Bike Valet service for your next event to ensure visitors’ bikes are secure with trusted staff and they make all processes leading up to the big day easy as well as stress free! As such, I would love to send a big thank you to all the Bike Auckland staff who came to our Cycling LIVE Day event and look forward to the next time we work together :)”
Trey Latu, Motat, Event Assistant, January 2023

“Because of the valet parking we were confident to cycle from home (Mt Albert) to the event knowing the bikes would be safe and secure. It was the difference for us between cycling and some other transport mode involving fossil fuel consumption. And a bonus was being able to use streets closed to cars etc. Ah the joy of freedom from 4-wheel danger! Please continue to push for this type of service at public events, it makes such a difference. Hopefully event organizers will come to understand the benefits of providing secure cycle parking. It is part of the way of the future.”
