High School Street Light Banner Contest
Cupertino Safe Routes to School is looking for talented high school students to showcase their artistic abilities and design new street light banners for the City of Cupertino. These banners will encourage and promote alternative transportation use throughout the City. The designs that are chosen will be placed on street light banners for our entire community to appreciate. The locations of the banners will be street lights along De Anza Blvd, Stevens Creek Blvd, and Stelling Rd. This is an opportunity to be involved with a community focused effort to bring art to public spaces.
Contest ends on Friday, May 21.
Earth Day Pedal 4 the Planet Family Bike Rides
On Saturday, April 13, the City of Cupertino will be hosting 2 free family bike rides. Starting at 10 a.m. and leaving from Cupertino City Hall, there will be a short 5-mile route and a longer 11-mile route. Both routes will feature Cupertino landmarks and interesting cycling infrastructure. Riders should come with the expectation that this will be a slower paced family ride that is intended to highlight Cupertino and what it has to offer for cyclists of all ages. After rides return to City Hall, stick around for Cupertino’s Earth & Arbor Day Festival!
Free pre-ride bike checks provided by our partners at Sports Basement!
Arrive at Cupertino City Hall @ 9:00 a.m. Rides depart @ 10 a.m.
