Stanford receives its third Platinum Bicycle Friendly University award (2019—2023)
Stanford is the only university to receive a renewal of its Platinum designation and was the first university to be recognized at the highest level when the program launched in 2011. This year’s Bicycle Friendly University (BFU) award extends Stanford’s second Platinum designation (2015–2019) for another four years (2019–2023).
The League of American Bicyclists (LAB) recognized Stanford University with a third Platinum Bicycle Friendly University (BFUSM) award.
“We know that when colleges and universities invest in bicycling, great things happen: We decrease our carbon footprint, improve health, increase connection to community, and promote a healthy, fun and safe campus culture. The League of American Bicyclists deserves credit and our gratitude for helping to encourage this to happen through a friendly but rigorous competition, where the ultimate winners are the riders.”
“We extend special thanks to our campus partners. While we are the face of the bicycle program, we couldn’t achieve this award without the strong collaboration we enjoy with our campus partners. As we celebrate this award, we look forward to sharing our Platinum best practices with others and learning from others, as well. There is always more we can do, and we remain committed to improving biking and bike safety for our riders and community.”
