Recap: North Park Walk Audit
We can’t think of a better way to spend an evening than walking around San Diego’s neighborhoods with dozens of folks engaged in making our streets safer for everyone!
This past Tuesday, August 29th, we had the pleasure of partnering with Walk N Roll SD and North Park Main Street to host a walk audit of University Avenue and Polk Avenue between Texas Street and 32nd Street. Everyone in the group used mapping tools to identify safety hazards for pedestrians and bicyclists in the neighborhood. Circulate will be analyzing the data, compiling it into a short report, and sharing it publicly and with the City of San Diego.

Thank you to the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) and the City of San Diego for funding this important effort!
Recap: lakeside teen center rodeo
Bike rodeos are one of our favorite things to do and we have been fortunate enough to host 3 of them in the past 2 weeks!
We partnered with the San Diego Parks Foundation and Lakeside Teen Center to have people of all ages practice their biking, scootering, or skateboarding skills on an obstacle course. We created the course to model real-life challenges that riders may face while riding on the road. We enjoyed getting out and spending our summer nights watching people have fun and gain confidence in their ability to roll safely. The coolest part was engaging with members of the community and having them teach us some cool tricks.
We are excited to host more rodeos in the future and would love to see you take on our next course!
