This summer GoTriangle, Great Outdoor Provision Company, and the Bulls are presenting a monthly “bike to the ballpark” promotion designed to appeal to cyclists.
I went to one bike to the park game last year (and we went to the first one this year on May 18) and I feel like it’s a pretty neat promotion for people who like to get around by bike. The “deal” is that the first 200 people to show up on bikes get free bike valet parking and a “goodie bag” with some trinkets (lights, coupons, water bottles etc) in addition to the option to buy $10 tickets to the game. The tickets are the “cheap seats” out behind right field, which can get a lot of sun – so bring your sunscreen if you decide to take advantage of them.
All of this year’s events are for Sunday 5:05 p.m. games. The next one is this Sunday:
Sunday, June 8th; Game starts at 5:05pm
Sunday, July 6th; Game starts at 5:05pm
Sunday, August 17th; Game starts at 5:05pm
Past experience tells me attendance can vary; we went to the August game last year and the valet parking was slammed with a long wait time. For the May game this year we just walked up to the gate and had no wait at all. You might want to show up just a bit early to be on the safe side.
