Bike to Work Day tally – 1,324
According to Stanford’s Bicycle Program Coordinator ARIADNE SCOTT, 1,324 bicyclists breezed by or checked in at one of the campus energizer stations on Bike to Work Day, Thursday, May 13 – a 50 percent increase in riders compared to 2009. There were nine energizer stations, including one at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
As of Friday morning, 450 bicyclists had pledged to wear a helmet for every ride and follow the rules of the road all the time.
It’s not too late: Bicyclists who pledge through the month of May will have their names entered into a drawing to win a free bike, bike helmet or bike light. Visit http://transportation.stanford.edu/bikesafetypledge/.
