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.
