Thanking Sustainable Princeton For Co-Sponsoring Bike Valet Parking

To the Editor:

The Princeton Bicycle Advisory Committee would like to thank Sustainable Princeton for co-sponsoring the Bike Valet parking at Communiversity, and to everyone who helped make it a success. We expanded to two locations this year, serving a total of 85 bike and scooter riders of all ages!

Special thanks to David Cohen, PBAC’s Council liaison, who was instrumental in arranging for the event bike racks and for securing a second location for this year, and who devoted more hours than any of us on the Bike Valet.

We thank the MacLean Agency, the Whole Earth Center, and the Princeton-Mercer Regional Convention & Visitors Bureau for sponsoring bike racks, and HiTOPS for graciously lending us their lawn at Wiggins & Tulane Streets. Our hearty thanks also to Michelle Lambros for her outreach to the Princeton Merchants Association, identifying sponsors, and helping to coordinate artwork for the donor recognition banners.

Sustainable Princeton played a crucial role in facilitating the sponsorship of our new racks by private donors, and processing these donations to procure the racks. So far, however, three of the ten racks have actually been funded, and PBAC encourages additional “angels,” whether bike-friendly businesses, or private individuals, to step forward and help close the gap to sponsor the remaining seven racks. Please contact Sustainable Princeton ( for more information.

And of course, thanks to all who biked or rode your scooter to Communiversity, whether or not you parked it with the Bike Valets! The next Bike Valet will be at Sustainable Princeton’s GreenFest, on May 11, at the Princeton Shopping Center. We hope to see you there!
