Community Rallies To Replace Ghost Bike

Circulate was pride to join Families for Staff Streets San Diego to re-install Matt Keenan’s vandalized Ghost Bike. Ghost Bikes mark a spot where a cyclist lost their life while riding. When you see a white bicycle like this, please take it as a reminder to look out for cyclists and drive safely.

Thanks to the generosity of multiple organizations and individuals, Matt's wife Laura received donations for a replacement bike, assistance in preparing and installing the ghost bike, and support for fundraising efforts. As a result, on Sunday, January 28th at 10:30 am at 2100 Block of Camino del Rio South Laura and allies from the Cycling community were able to act swiftly to install a new ghost bike memorial and banner for Matt.

Otay Ranch Library’s Toddler Tales

Circulate is excited to host the Otay Ranch Library’s weekly reading program. On February 7that 10:15 am, Circulate staff will read a book called Runaway Signs with an interactive Safety Town component: teaching the 3 steps to crossing the road, and a take-home coloring activity. As part of our City of Chula Vista contract, Circulate has found some fun materials for the toddlers that will prepare them to be successful readers and smart pedestrians in the future. This event is open to the public and we hope to see you and your child there!

Walk Audits around the County!

This past week, the Circulate team has been getting their steps in around the county! We had the opportunity to conduct four walk audits with different organizations and identify safety hazards for pedestrians and bicyclists.

Starting last Tuesday, January 23, the planning team was in Rolando Park, where we were accompanied by the Rolando Park Community Council. Last week’s rain helped us identify locations that could benefit from traffic calming measures and spaces that were prone to flooding. The following walk audit was at Saburo Muraoka Elementary School, and we were accompanied by the parents who identified intersections that made it dangerous for their kids to walk to and from school.

Just the next day, the planning team went to the Arc of San Diego - Chula Vista, where participants identified streets that would benefit from pedestrian improvements such as wider sidewalks, pedestrian scale lighting, and crosswalks. The team wrapped up the final walk audit of January with Serving Seniors in Cortez Hill. The seniors enjoy their weekly walks, and they appreciated the opportunity to tell us about their own walking experiences.

The walk audit reports for each site can be found here.

Thank you to everyone who walked with us around the county!
