Volunteer to work bike valet at ArtFest Feb. 2-3

BikeWalkLee is recruiting volunteers to staff the bike valet at the ArtFest Feb. 2-3 in downtown Fort Myers.  It's going to be a fun event so go online now and sign-up now.  Thanks!!
As we mentioned in BikeWalkLee's Jan. 2nd blog post, Florida's Premier Art Festival, ArtFest along the waterfront in downtown Fort Myers, is promoting biking (and kayaking!) to this fun 2-day event.  BikeWalkLee has teamed up with Lee Memorial Health System (LMHS) to provide free bike valet parking services.  

There will be 2 shifts a day (4-hour shifts), so we'll need a total of 20 volunteers.  Each shift will have a BikeWalkLee team leader. You'll get a free festival t-shirt, volunteer parking is available (in case you can't bike to event).

The online sign-up system is now available and we need YOU to  volunteer to help us staff the bike valet.  How's how to sign up:
 Go to

  • First step is to Register creating a Username and Password.  
  • Click "next" at the bottom of the page.
  • The next page has a box that asks--do you have a "join code"? and type into this box: BikeWalkLee--THIS IS CRITICAL STEP
  • Click "next"
  • it asks if you're adult or teen and say adult
  • then set-up your account by filling out the profile form with all your contact info as requested
  • Click "next" to show all the available jobs
  • Scroll down to the day and time (morning or afternoon) that you're interested in volunteering and you'll see a job called "Bike Valet" (with BikeWalkLee in small letters on the top).  Click the BikeWalkLee option to sign up and it will show you that you've signed up for that shift (if there are still openings available)
  • Note that the Bike Valet option appears four times in the list--Feb. 2nd morning & afternoon & Feb. 3rd morning & afternoon shifts, so be sure to pick the shift you're looking for.
  • If you can't see the Bike Valet positions then you didn't enter the Join Code earlier (if that happens just click on the Your Account button in the header area and add the Join Code). 
  • There are 2 shifts each day with 5 available spots per shift. The system automatically "counts down" so when the shift is full it says Full or something like that.
  • As soon as you've signed up online, you'll get an automatic e-mail that confirms yours assignment and provides you with additional information about attire, parking, etc.
If you have any difficulties signing up online, contact Jeanne Seehaver, the ArtFest Volunteer Coordinator. 

For all the information visit and click on Maps and Directions. Now spread the word to your friends, encouraging them to bike to this fun event.  See you there!
