Join us for our 2014, 5th Annual Bike Palo Alto! event on Sunday, October 5th, 1-4 pm. Last year's event was a big success with over 400 participants! Did you know - you never have to bike on El Camino? Palo Alto has great bike routes to get you to nearly every destination. Join us for a fun afternoon and explore Palo Alto's great bike routes! Participants receive local bike maps, safety information and free helmet fitting, bike maintenance and more! We have short, medium and long routes with free and fun treat stops along the way. Bike Palo Alto! is a free, family friendly event, no preregistration necessary. Just bring your bike and helmet and have some fun! Start at El Carmelo Elementary School (corner of Bryant & Loma Verde).
What is Bike Palo Alto?
Bike Palo Alto! is a fun, family friendly event which encourages Palo Alto residents to lower their carbon footprint and ride bikes more often for local shopping trips and getting around the city. The Palo Alto Climate Protection Plan shows that non-commute travel in Palo Alto, including local trips to the grocery store, etc., is the largest source of Global Warming emissions in the city. Bike Palo Alto! highlights Palo Alto's great bike routes and provides activities and information that helps Palo Alto residents learn how biking for local trips in Palo Alto can be easy and fun!
