Spotted this one on Bike Pittsburgh's website this morning: the bike advocacy organization will again sponsor bike-valet parking at the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival. And, cyclists are being invited to participate in the "I <3 My Bike" program at the valet tent.
Cyclists will have the chance to get their photo taken with their bikes on a backdrop of the city's skyline. Their name, serial number and bike description will also be collected for a private database. If the bike is ever stolen, Bike Pittsburgh will provide the information and photo to police as proof ownership.
Cyclists don't have to be a Bike Pittsburgh member to participate. The program operates at the valet tent from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturdays, and from noon to 8 p.m. on Sundays. Valet is free; and you don't need to bring your own lock.
