Valet Bike Parking

The Bicycle Coalition is offering FREE “valet bike parking” (VBP) for all State Theatre Summer Concert Series at Thompson’s Point shows!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Just ride on down to the main Thompson’s Point parking lot, follow the signage for “free valet bike parking,” and look for the Bicycle Coalition of Maine tent. You will be given a wristband that corresponds to one put on your bike, which will be kept in a secured, supervised area during the show. Please pick up your bike promptly upon the conclusion of the show!

We rely on volunteers to make this service possible. If you would like to volunteer, please click here. To say thank you, volunteers will be able to attend most of that evening’s show!

BIKING DIRECTIONS

Did you know Thompson’s Point is within walking and biking (and kayaking!) distance from downtown Portland, and is connected to the Portland Trails system?

From the WEST, Thompson’s Point is accessible via the Fore River Trail. From the EAST, is it accessible via the Fore River Parkway Trail, and we suggest taking Sewall Street when biking from the NORTH.

We will also be offering free valet bike parking at TD Beach to Beacon 10K, on August 6, 2022.

Help us support the largest road race in Maine by parking and caring for bikes! With an attendance of more than 6,500 runners, many choose to skip finding a parking spot, and instead ride their bikes to the starting line. Volunteering is a great way to support friends and family that are running, and—fingers crossed—it will hopefully be a beautiful day to hang out by the water at Fort Williams State Park.
