Bike Anywhere Day 2023 Recap
This past May 18th, 2023 was San Diego’s annual Bike Anywhere Day from 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM. Circulate co-hosted a booth with Rick Engineering in their parking lot on Friars Road. The team distributed Bike Anywhere Day t-shirts, snacks, and refreshments for the bicyclists that stopped by.
In addition to this, Circulate hosted an area for bicyclists to discuss why they love walking/biking as well as sharing what makes them feel most vulnerable when near the streets. Participants had the opportunity to be photographed or record a short video on their experience.

REACH OUTREACH at Lincoln High School
Circulate San Diego was invited back to Lincoln High School for their Big Night Student Exhibition and Resource Fair where we had the opportunity to speak with Lincoln High School students and parents on the proposed roundabouts and other safe streets improvements on Imperial Avenue. These proposed changes are part of our ongoing project the Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health Program (REACH) in South East San Diego.
Parents and students alike discussed with us what would make it safer for students to commute to school via walking or biking, especially along Imperial Avenue, and they advocated for protected bicycle lanes, more street lighting, and enforcing traffic laws in order to reduce speeding vehicles around schools. It was an informative experience to speak with everyone who provided us with insight on current conditions and likewise educating people on how to navigate through roundabouts and other future safe streets changes.
