Make a difference! Get ready to bike or walk to work on Thursday, May 13, as we celebrate the greenest ways to commute. By bicycling (or walking) instead of driving five miles a day, you could reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1,287 pounds annually. According to Bikes Belong, the energy savings is equivalent to replacing 13 incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs or flying 2,429 fewer miles a year. Try our commute calculator to find the cost and emissions savings for your own commute: http://transportation.stanford.edu/cost.
On Bike to Work Day, stop by one of Stanford’s eight Energizer Stations between 6:30 a.m. and 9 a.m., where you can take a break and pick up a re-usable bag and snacks while supplies last.
We’re seeking volunteers to help meet and greet riders at our energizer stations. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help during one of these two shifts: 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. or 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
