On-street protected bike lanes at Lawson Middle School


There are documented safety issues for students and local cyclists on the streets adjacent to Lawson Middle School.

The Cupertino Bicycle Pedestrian Commission approved the recommended plan of the city staff after extensive public outreach. This plan includes on-street protected bike lanes along Vista Dr. and Forest Ave. This will reduce parking but dramatically improve safety for students walking and biking. YOUR email would be helpful in support of this project.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's that project in my neighborhood?

Find all about bike and ped projects in your neighborhood on our Projects & Funding page here. We list all of the current and recent past projects there by location.

How do I know which candidates support walking and biking in Cupertino?

Walk-Bike Cupertino surveys all the candidates for the City Council and sometimes for other races as well for their positions on walking and biking. The information comes out in February before the primaries or in October before the election so you can make an informed decision. The 2022 information is found here for City Council Candidates and the 2024 information for State Assembly candidates is here.

How do I (or my kids) learn to ride a bike?

The best way is to take a class! There are classes in Cupertino and in all the nearby cities as well. See more information here for Bicyling Solutions, which is perfect for adults: private/group lessons. Middle School students can also take classes through Cupertino Safe Routes to School. Classes are held each summer. See here for more information: Middle School Bike Skills Class.

How can I get more involved or help more?

We’re always looking for friends and neighbors that are willing to help advocate for a particular project, or just to improve walking and biking in general. Here’s some ideas:

Contact us about a particular project. We have lots of ideas on how to help! Email us at info@walkbikecupertino.org.

Report new incidents, concerns and areas needing improvement, so that we can get your concerns elevated and make sure they are included in the next Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans. (Click here to report.)

Attend Cupertino City Council meetings (first and third Tuesdays at 6:45pm) or email the Council to let them know that bicycle and pedestrians issues are important to you, or that you support a particular project.

Want to help more? Consider whether our Advisory Board is a good fit for you. Email us at info@walkbikecupertino.org to ask for more details.

Where's a good place to hike locally?

Click here for some great information on hiking locally.

How do I keep my kids safe while riding?

See our great safety tips here for riders of all ages! Classes are also a great idea. Here are two options: private/group lessons, or a summer bike clinic for middle schoolers.

Don’t forget that YOUR advocacy can make it safer for you to ride and walk in Cupertino. Working together, WBC has successfully advocated for great walking trails, protected bike lanes, and safety measures around the city.
