Biking — the clean, green path to campus

March 9th, 2009

College campuses are making tracks toward minimizing their carbon footprint by maximizing the use of bikes.

Stanford University leads the pack with a vast array of bicycling resources. Students have always used their bikes on campus, ever since the founding in 1891.

Over time the Penny-farthing, high wheeler-type of bicycles have given way to folding and mountain bikes. Even Vanessa Hudgens as Gabriella, in High School Musical 3 can be seen riding her bike around Stanford’s campus.

Students at Stanford have no excuse to leave their bikes at home. The campus currently has room for over 12,000 bikes on bike racks in campus and also offers valet bike parking for special events such as the Cardinals home football games.
