To show how much we really appreciate all the groovers who bike to the festival, this year we are offering ‘Varks Valet’, a FREE Bike Valet service dedicated to Scott “Aardvark” Penny, located at the Main Entry. Check your bike in between 12pm and 2pm on any day of the festival and you will also receive a complimentary bicycle safety check!
Varks Valet will open 11.30am and close 11.00pm Fri, Sat & Sun (11.30am to 9.00pm Mon 3 October)
Uncollected bikes will be locked within the festival site and returned to Varks Valet by 11.30am the following day (9.00am Tue 4 October)

Tips for sharing pathways
All pathways in Queensland are shared between bikes, skateboards, scooters and pedestrians unless otherwise signed.
Simple rules to follow:
- Everyone should keep left and give way to pedestrians.
- Warn when approaching. Cyclists use a bell, skateboarders call out.
- Don’t obstruct the path.
- Stop and look before leaving the path crossing the road.
Tips for sharing roads
Be considerate of drivers when choosing to cycle two abreast. Indicate clearly and make sure you are clearly visible.
- Ride predictably.
- Use hand signals.
- Obey the road rules. Rules apply to everyone not just drivers.
