Cupertino Safe Routes to School is pleased to announce the return of our Middle School Bike Skills program this summer! These bike safety workshops prepare rising 6th, 7th, and 8th graders for biking to middle school and beyond. Participants will learn:
- Basic traffic laws
- How to position yourself on the road
- How to navigate intersections
- The most common types of bike crashes and how to avoid them
- Proper hand signals and how to let drivers know your intentions
This Middle School Bike Skills program is run by Wheel Kids on the dates listed below. Program includes an evening, one-hour online interactive bike class to learn bike skills, plus an on-bike, in-person 1/2 day camp to practice bike skills and go for a group bike ride. The in-person camp will be conducted in a way that maintains social distance between households at all times, both for the skills drills and the group ride. This is safer than most summer camps!
Please register at least four weeks in advance. Register here.

Help reduce the spread of COVID-19:
Before arriving, participants should screen themselves for COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, night sweats, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tiredness, muscle or body aches, headaches, confusion, or loss of sense of taste/smell. Participants may not attend the program if they have COVID-19 symptoms, and must go home immediately if they develop any symptoms during a camp session, and seek COVID-19 testing: If You Think You Are Sick.
Students may only participate if they have not attended another camp or summer school in the prior three weeks.
Participants are required to wear a face covering except while biking or eating, in which case they should keep their face covering with them to put back on later. Face coverings are not required for anyone if it is medically inadvisable for them to wear one.
Participants should sanitizer their hands immediately after arrival, immediately before departure, and as often as possible throughout the day.
Participants must cough or sneeze into a cloth, tissue or elbow.
How we reduce the spread of COVID-19:
- Limit class size to 6 students
- Provide hand sanitizer on site
- Move classroom portion of workshop online
- Keep in-person portion of workshop entirely outside
- Require at least 6 feet between all participants at all times
- Space students out so they each practice skills drills on a separate course
- Require instructors and participants to do a symptom check before class
- Require face masks when not exercising or eating
