- Cupertino Bicycle Transportation Plan – Updated May 3, 2011. “Cupertino’s Bicycle Transportattion Plan is committed to improving the bicycle infrastructure within our City to enable and encourage people to bike to work and schools, to utilize a bicycle to run errands, and to enjoy the health and environmental benefits that bicycling provides cyclists of every age.” “Cupertino…has a mild climate with daytime highs ranging from 45 degrees in January to 95 degrees in July. It has an annual rainfall of approximately 23.0 inches, little or no rain between May and October, and relatively flat terrain. Cupertino has an ideal setting to maximize the utilization of bicycles for commuting, utility, and recreational purposes.” This plan has largely been ignored but has much relevance today.
