Back again this year, the Frequent Rider Card will reward you for taking the next step beyond this event by riding your bike (instead of driving) to local stores, services and entertainment destinations after the event.  This year when you turn in a competed card, the first 100 people will get an “I Bike Palo Alto” t-shirt.  Everyone will be entered in a grand prize drawing for a Taste of Palo Alto!

How It Works:

  • During the event, get your Frequent Rider Card (FRC) signed at each treat stop to get your treat.
  • After Bike Palo Alto, bring your card along each time a you ride to a business or serive and make a purchase, get the sales clerk to enter the date, store and location on a space on the card . One location per day at any business or service you like.
  • After the 8th ride and purchase, turn in your FRC by taking a picture of (or scanning) the completed inside of your card and sending it to: bikepaloalto@gmail.com Please include your name, phone number and your t-shirt size (unisex S, M, L, XL or Woman’s XS, S, M, L, XL) in your message.
  • Cards will be given to all participants over the age of 14 while supply lasts, only one card per person.  Cards expire on Nov 18, 2017.
  • Every redeemed FRC card will be entered in the grand prize drawing and the first 100 riders will get an I Bike Palo Alto t-shirt.
  • Grand prize drawing:  All completed cards turned in by noon electronically on Nov. 18, 2017 will be entered in a grand prize drawing; see below for details.
  • After turning in your card, you will receive confirmation and details to the prize drawing party on Nov. 18 from 2 to 4 PM.  Need not be present to win.
  • For extra fun and bragging rights, post a selfie of you at an interesting store or business on our Face Book page FB Bike Palo Alto #bikepaloalto

Now that you know the fun ways to get around Palo Alto, we hope you will be inspired to complete the FRC and join us at the prize drawing party on Nov. 18th.
