City of Kitchener


Introducing Bike Kitchener's Bikecheck - it's like a coat check, only for your bike!

When you ride your bike to an event with Bikecheck, you can hand your bike to one of our attendants and then go enjoy the event without having to worry about your bike!  All bikes must be picked up within a half hour of the end of the event.  

Look for our signs this summer at the following events for a FREE, safe, and secure place to keep your bike while you enjoy the festivities. BikeCheck is currently confirmed at BikeFest (May 28), Summer Lights Art Festival (June 17), KW Multicultural Festival (June 24-25), Kultrun Festival (July 8-9), RibFest (July 14-16), Kitchener Blues Festival (August 10-13) and Kidspark (August 20).
