BikeUNL, in cooperation with Nebraska Athletics Department, will offer a free bike valet service for the Husker Red-White Spring football game on Saturday, April 12. Attendees who bike to campus can keep their bikes safe and secure at the Bike Valet, located just west of the Coliseum (on the northeast side of Memorial Stadium.) Freewill donations will be accepted with proceeds used to install on-campus bike pumps and workstations.
Game Day Bike Valet will open at noon on game day and conclude at 5 p.m. The Spring Game begins at 2 p.m. at Memorial Stadium. All bikes will be supervised by BikeUNL staff for the entirety of the game. Bike Valet patrons can bring their bikes to the west side of the Coliseum and provide their contact information. Following the game, this information will be used to verify the owner during pick-up. Failure to collect a bike by 5 p.m. will result in a $35 handling and storage fee due to limited storage space. Patrons who do not collect their bikes by this time will need to claim their bikes during regular UNL Outdoor Adventures business hours, noon-6 p.m. each day. For their safety, Bike Valet patrons are encouraged to use bike routes that avoid heavy traffic. These routes can be found on the Bike Valet website, http://bike.unl.edu/bikevalet.
Game Day Bike Valet's goal is to help alleviate heavy game-day traffic while providing a safe, secure and convenient location for bicyclists to store their bikes. The Bike Valet was first offered in Fall 2013 for all home Husker football games and organizers plan to offer a similar service next year.
UNL was recently awarded the Silver Bicycle Friendly University designation by the League of American Bicyclists and the new Bike Valet service is part of UNL's ongoing efforts to welcome and encourage bicycle commuters and cycling enthusiasts.
