There is nothing like staying fit as you ride to and from the California Roots Reggae Festival this weekend! Yes, California Roots has partnered with Green Pedal Couriers to bring you the official Bike and Skateboard Valet of the fest. This is a perfect scenario to influence showgoers to stay active while reducing the carbon footprint of visitors to Monterey. The Fit Fathers group will certainly be taking advantage.

So feel free to cycle or skate from your hotel or parking lots down the way. Make sure to head over to gate 8 this year.

GREEN PEDAL COURIERS

GPC (Green Pedal Couriers) has been serving the Monterey and Salinas areas since 2008 delivering food, court documents, medical specimens, promotional ads and posters for local art and music festivals.

BICYCLE VALET SERVICE

GPC started the bicycle Valet service in 2010 in partnership with Monterey Green Action of CSUMB. Their basic duties include watching parked bicycles and parking and sticking numbers on bikes. Customers will receive a slip/receipt and answers to basic questions about GPC and what the company does for the community. GPC’s bike valet service allows others to ride rather than drive, essentially reducing traffic, air pollution, noise pollution and road rage. They are encouraging clean air, resource conservation and happy communities.
