Free Bike Valet Parking at Ojai Day October 17

Ride your bike to Ojai Day and leave the parking and bike security to us by parking your bike at the free OVGC Valet Bike Parking area. Flyer and information Here.
To reduce the number of cars descending on the downtown area as people arrive for the festivities, the OVGC will set up a bike check service in the parking lot of the library at 111 E. Ojai Avenue. In offering the service, the Coalition hopes to encourage attendees to benefit the environment by pedaling to the event, rather than driving.
The great block party known as Ojai Day attracts more local participants than any other event in
the year. The valet bike parking service will be like a coat check for bicycles: bicycle riders will
be issued a claim check for their bikes, which will be guarded by Coalition members in a secure
“bike corral.” This means that the bicycles—as well as accessories such as helmets—will be safe from damage or theft.
This year Ojai Day will have a new “Go Green Ojai” area especially for environmentally minded
businesses, organizations, and agencies. After attendees leave their bicycles at the bike valet,
they can go over and say hello at the Ojai Valley Green Coalition booth in the “Go Green Ojai”
area.
The Green Coalition is committed to encouraging more bicycle riding in Ojai. Each person who
bicycles rather than driving to Ojai Day will have the satisfaction of knowing that they’re reducing carbon emissions in the valley.
