Roble and Casa Zapata win third annual Bike Safety Dorm Challenge

Stanford residences Roble and Casa Zapata beat out 19 other undergraduate dorms to win the school’s third annual Bike Safety Dorm Challenge, sponsored by Parking & Transportation Services (P&TS). The competition took place from Sept. 18 to Dec. 14, 2012, and a record 951 Stanford undergraduates participated, up from just over 650 students in 2010.

The two winning dorms will receive a free charter bus trip to Lake Tahoe.  Although Roble surpassed other dorms by attaining the highest number of participants with 196 students, Casa Zapata, Burbank and Muwekma-tah-ruk tied for first when each dorm reached 100 percent participation. However, Casa Zapata won a three-way drawing to join Roble as the competition’s winner.

The competition kicked off with a training session on bike safety hosted by Ariadne Delon Scott, P&TS bicycle program coordinator, for the Resident Assistants. This year, 15 percent of undergraduate students and 27 percent of undergraduate dorms participated in the challenge.
