Pedal to Stanford on Bike-to-Work Day

Energizer Stations will be part of the Stanford landscape on May 16, when Bike-to-Work Day is marked at the university.

From 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on that day, bicyclists can pick up a bag of goodies as well as refreshments at four campus sites. The stations will be located at Campus Drive at Santa Teresa Street, Palm Drive at Arboretum Road, Escondido Road at Stanford Avenue and Serra Street at El Camino Real.

Those interested in registering for Bike-to-Work Day can log on to the RIDES for Bay Area Commuters website at www.rides.org. The form also provides a "Bike Buddy" section to assist those wishing to find a riding partner.

Registered participants are eligible for prizes, including a bicycle tour for two in France.

The event, sponsored annually by RIDES, is part of an environmental campaign that promotes bicycling to work as an inexpensive, friendly way to commute to work or school. This is the fourth year Stanford has participated in the effort.
