  • Bicycle safety: Two serious bicycle crashes on campus this week are an unfortunate reminder to all bicyclists to follow all rules of the road, especially stopping at stop signs. Wearing a helmet for every ride – even short trips  – is highly recommended. When riding at night, a front headlight and rear red reflector are required by law, and bright colored or reflective clothing also is a good idea. Free bike safety classes will be offered Feb. 16 and 24 from 4-5 p.m. at 340 Bonair Siding. For more information, visit the Bicycling at Stanford website.
