Pilots, who have flown in, and people who camp
during AirVenture week find it convenient to bike to and from the event.
Others, who wish to avoid parking and have quicker mobility around the
perimeter, choose to bike as well.
EAA AirVenture grounds have undergone
reconstruction but still provide six locations for parking bicycles: one
near the Ultralight barn; one at the F-Lot, between Camp Scholler and
Exhibit Hangar D; one outside the new Main Gate; one east of the bus park,
near Forest Home Avenue; one at the North 40 admissions gate, near the
Warbirds area; and one at the AirVenture Museum.
Each bicycle parking location is equipped
with a rack or a fence to park bicycles. John Faeh, EAA security manager,
advises those with bicycles to come prepared with locks and chains to
secure bicycles at parking locations.
EAA AirVenture welcomes all types of
transportation: planes, helicopters, RVs, trams, and even bicycles.
However, bicycles may only be ridden in camp grounds or on the roads that
lead to AirVenture grounds. In addition, people who park their bicycles at
the AirVenture Museum can take the shuttle bus to the bus park outside the
Due to pedestrian traffic, bicycles are not
permitted beyond the AirVenture gates and fences or the flightline.
