    Default Bicycle parking

    Does anyone know if there is specific bicycle parking areas? Like if my lodging was a couple of miles away and I wanted to bicycle over to the festival instead of driving?

    One of my friends recently posted this photo on his blog. It seems relevant.



    But yeah, I have seen people chain up their bikes to fences and other bikes and random stuff. I'm not sure what the rate of theft is like. I would suggest using a junker.

    I would suggest unicycle only.

    I wouldn't worry about theft. Too many bikes to steal, too difficult to take them anywhere. And you need a pass to get within a mile of the venue. I brought my bike last year, but I was camping. Rode it around town for errands and fun.

    No, there isn't. Find a nice spot up against a fence and lock it up real good.

    I heard about a couple people having their bikes stolen around the camp site. I would find a gate to lock it to so you at least won't get the drunks accidentally confusing bikes and riding off on yours.

    The only problem I have had is idiots locking their bikes in a way that traps our bikes in, but there's not much you can do about that.

    I still support GV creating at least a few official bike lock areas.

    We never had that, but seeing the above photo where the bikes are stacked....I can see why....that defeats the purpose of having the bikes....being able to get in and out fast.

    Yes there is a bike lot this year. Wait for updated map to be released.

    The bike lot, I believe, is primarily for people riding a bike to the show. Not for campers to store their bikes necessarily.

    If this is true, that's very super cool.

    And if you are in the know, please forward all updated maps and set times plz.

    I've used a bike the last 2 years and I've never had a problem. Find an empty spot. Lock it up. Go to show. Leave show. Return to spot. Unlock. Ride back to your hotel/campsite/etc.

    Rinse.

    Repeat.

    Parking and locking your bike won't be the problem, it will be navigating your bike through crowded, sandy pedestrian walkways and congested parking lots as GV has yet to address making a bike-only pathway somewhere.
