CIBike Grants Brand New Bike Valet Setup

What's Happening
BikeVentura has hosted free bike valet at more events this year than ever, and Channel Islands Bike Club (CIBike) took notice. CIBike members volunteering at the Surf Rodeo in July saw that it was successful (we parked 200 bikes that weekend) but our DIY setup needed a little sprucing up. CIBike Grants Coordinator Bill Faulkner asked us to "make a list" for what we thought we needed, and then asked us to add what we wanted.

If there's a CIBike volunteer there, thank them for us!
