Bike Valet Parking at Decatur Book Festival

No need to worry about where to park for the Decatur Book Festival this weekend: Ride your bicycle and take advantage of the FREE Bicycle Valet Parking!  Valet Parking, sponsored by the City of Decatur and Bicycle South, will be located on North McDonough in front of Decatur City Hall. Volunteers from the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition will take great care of your bicycle.

Be sure to stop by the Active Living tent located next to the valet parking. Pick up a Bicycle Suitability Map to help you navigate Decatur, as well as information on upcoming Bicycle Classes beginning in October.

They will be ready to park your bicycle at the Book Festival.
