Colorado State University alternative transportation staff, police, student government and other university members will hand out breakfast three days in September to encourage students and employees to bike to campus for their academic or work day. The stations are sponsored by CSU’s Parking and Transportation Services.
Breakfast stations will be at the following locations and dates:
- 7:30 – 9:30 a.m., Thursday, Sept. 15 at Plum Street and Meridian Avenue
- 7:30-9:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 22 at South Drive and Meridian Avenue
- 7:30 -9:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 29 at Pitkin Street on the Center Avenue Mall
CSU RAMbassadors, CSU police, ASCSU members and other transportation staff from the university will provide education and information to students and employees about bike infrastructure and safety at the stations.
The breakfast stations will take place during the city-wide Bike Safety Week, Sept. 18-24, part of Ride Smart Drive Smart, an initiative developed collaboratively by FC Bikes and Fort Collins Police Services to increase road user safety through education and enforcement. Colorado State University is joining in educational efforts. During Bike Safety Week the city and CSU will work to educate drivers and bicyclists about safe practices. This fall, road users will learn how to avoid one of the most common bicycle and motor vehicle crashes, which is often the result of wrong-way riding, as well as other behaviors that increase risk of bicycle-related conflicts.
