Bike Palo Alto - seeks volunteers!

Dear Friends,

A few neighbors in Palo Alto are organizing the 3rd annual Bike Palo Alto event and need help for a few hours with this citywide, green team event. The date is Sun, October 7 from 1-4 pm beginning at El Carmelo elementary school (3024 Bryant "Bike" Blvd) . In 2010 over 300 people attended, last year over 550 attended - their vision is to grow this event each year until the streets of Palo Alto are as full of cyclists as the streets of Amsterdam!

What is Bike Palo Alto! ?
A "treasure" hunt along Palo Alto's network of quieter streets, to help folks discover great routes for cycling all over town.

Who should come?
If you've ever thought of cycling to the grocery store, library or wanted to send a teen by bike to the orthodontist, had your eye on biking with small kids to the ice cream store, this is your event.

How does it work?
Sun., Oct. 7th from 1-4 at El Carmelo, cyclists will be given maps of Palo Alto's quiet yet efficient routes and can explore one or more of the routes, that afternoon, with treat stops along the way.

Sample treat stops: Whole Foods, Sweet Shoppe,YMCA, Baylands.
Additional services:  free bike check, individual route planning, helmet fitting, safety tips.

Volunteer jobs:
Welcome riders at the gate.
Register riders, pass out maps.
Pass out treats to riders at treat stops.
Guide riders in making creative contributions to an eco-mural at Parks.
Distribute flyers two weeks before the event.
Setup or cleanup before/after

Time required:
Two to four hours on the 7th or two weeks before.  We'll train you.

How to signup as a volunteer:
Email Robyn Duby:  Please let her know if you would like to help with pre-event activities or day of activities.
