Santa Monica Alt Car Expo Sept. 18-19 2015

I realize some of you would do anything in your power to stay away, but look at the picture at the bottom. That's gonna be there. And:
The City of Santa Monica's Strategic and Transportation Planning division offers FREE valet parking for bicycles at special events in the City including three weekly Farmers' Market, the Thursday night Twilight Concert Series on the Pier, and the only bike valet provided at a Cirque du Soleil event world-wide. The highly successful Bike Valet has safely parked over 175,000 bicycles since it was first launched July 10th, 2006 and is currently parking over 25,000 bikes per year.

Benefits from providing convenient, secure bike parking include reduced traffic congestion, less congested and safer sidewalks for pedestrians, better air quality, and a welcoming atmosphere that encourages riding. Everyone loves the Bike Valet, from recreational riders, families and tourists to dedicated cyclists.
They don't call it the People's Republic of Santa Monica for nuttin'.

So the guy is having trouble stepping over. When he trips, the bike goes down with him. You're still over there, wondering if you really want this guy riding it off to park it. . . .

More like...have to make a "valet mode" for the motors, so he doesn't hit the throttles and end up ramming into somebody or something.... :lol:

(and...mine are rather larger than the typical bicycle, so if their system doesn't allow for anything but typical bikes, it could cause a little problem)
