Free Valet Bike Parking at Waterfront Park

How does it work? It’s like a coat check for your bike. Runners, volunteers, and spectators can drop off their bike (or stroller, scooter, trailer, etc.) at one of the Valet Bike Parking locations to make bicycling convenient, reduce traffic congestion and vehicle emissions. Trained staff and volunteers will watch your bicycle so you can enjoy the YAM Scram and marathon. Avoid the fuss…and leave your bike with us! For more information about this service please visit: Local Motion.

YAM Scram Bike Parking opens at 7:30am and closes at 11:30am; all bikes must be picked up by 11:30am. Location: Lake Street, off of College Street at Waterfront Park.
