1st Walk+Bike About Carlsbad Photos

Walk + Bike is a partnership led by the City of Carlsbad, Circulate San Diego and the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition to promote walking and biking around Carlsbad, with a special focus on the downtown Village and surrounding areas. Join us and bring your friends and families along for the fun. The 12-month campaign is funded by a grant from the San Diego Association of Governments and includes events, outreach to schools, business promotions and other activities to get more people walking and biking instead of driving on short trips around town. Check back regularly for updates and information about how you can get involved. Walk + Bike Carlsbad is intended to be a model for the region, so let's show them how it's done! 

The First Walk + Bike About was held at at the Carlsbad Senior Center, 799 Pine Ave. The event will offer tips for walking and biking in Carlsbad and provide information to help walkers and bicyclists feel comfortable making short trips around town by foot or bike. Breakfast provided.
This event is for bicycle riders of all ages and abilities.
The event was free, open to the public and included a presentation at 10 a.m. and a bicycle and walking tour of the Village and Barrio at 11 a.m. Participants may choose to either walk or bike.
