University receives biking ‘platinum’ award

The League of American Bicyclists (LAB) recently awarded the top “platinum” award to Stanford for bike friendliness. Stanford was the only institution among 20 colleges and universities surveyed to receive the highest award, ranking ahead of “gold” winners UC-Davis and UC-Santa Barbara. According to the LAB website, schools were judged based on infrastructure built to promote cycling, available education programs for cyclists, university efforts to encourage biking, law enforcement involvement and plans for the future.
