Bike/Walk Los Altos/Hills
A More Bicycle- & Pedestrian-Friendly Community
GreenTown’s goal is a more bicycle and pedestrian-friendly community. We do so through services, programs and advocacy. With sixty percent of the energy used in Santa Clara County is for transportation – cars and trucks yet 40% of car trips are less than two miles – an easy biking distance! Imagine what we could do collectively, if we shift just one car trip per week to biking or walking.
GreenTown Los Altos’ Bike/Walk activities include :
- Bike/Walk to School – Walk or Wheel (WoW!) programs at our elementary & junior high schools get kids walking/biking to school.
- Bike Valets – Enjoy local events & leave your car home. Park your bike worry-free at events including Fine Art in the Park (May), the Los Altos Art & Wine Festival (July) and Fall Festival (October).
- Bike Tours – We lead tours that mix fun with a little education. April is our Native Garden Bike Tour, aka Lawn-Be-Gone Bike Tour, September is the Historic Homes Bike Tour, and we’ve had a couple of night bike rides, the Winter Solstice in Dec. and the Summer Solstice in June.
- ReCycle Bike Drive – We collect used bikes, clean them up, and distribute them to students who can’t afford to buy one. This annual event happens in May. Learn more.
