Cupertino Bicycle Transportation Plan
The 2011 Cupertino Bicycle Transportation Plan is a roadmap designed to encourage bicycling as a safe, practical, and healthy alternative to the automobile. The Plan describes the long-term goals with respect to the creation of a safe, convenient and comprehensive network of bicycle facilities throughout the city.

The Plan is divided into five main chapters. These chapters address Environment, Engineering, Encouragement, Education, and Enforcement as pertaining to bicycling within Cupertino. The heart of the Plan is Chapter 3, in which seventeen proposed bikeways are described. City Council’s adoption of the Plan will allow staff to pursue the feasibility of the individual bikeways through detailed engineering study, public outreach, and funding research. Staff will return to Council for final approval of each of the bikeways once that work has been completed.

Trail Projects
CBPAC also advocates the creation of trails for recreation and transportation that connect scenic vistas and historical landmarks. Trails will be auto-free, mixed-use for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. The proposed Union Pacific Railroad Trail follows the Union Pacific train tracks from Cupertino's Stevens Creek Boulevard south to Los Gatos' Winchester Boulevard along the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The level trail will stretch nine miles and connect neighborhoods, parks, two community colleges, and several business centers. It also connects the Los Gatos Creek Trail at one end to the Stevens Creek Trail at the other.

The great Stevens Creek Trail will stretch from the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean. It was first conceived in the early 1960's and written into the Santa Clara County General Plan. Today the 54 mile trail is complete except for a 5-mile gap from Cupertino to Mountain View. When finished the trail would link Rancho San Antonio Park, Montebello Open Space Reserve, Stevens Creek County Park, and McClellan Ranch in Cupertino to Shoreline Park on the bay.
