Creative Engagement - Safe Ride Field Guide
Circulate has worked hard to provide fun and informative walking & biking resources for people to access online whenever, wherever. One resource we are really excited about is the Safe Ride Field Guide, available in English and Spanish. With nuggets of information and activities scattered across the colorful pages, this is an essential guide for every age and biker.
We hope you find these resources helpful and motivating! Funding was provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety. Special thanks to the League of American Bicyclists for providing the terrific illustrations for this book. To download our Safe Ride Field Guide, visit here.

This initiative is an affiliate of the World Health Organization’s Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities, an international effort launched in 2006 to help cities prepare for their own and the world’s growing population of older adults. AARP’s Network of Age-Friendly Communities targets improvements in eight domains that influence the health and quality of life of older adults. Over the course of the next year, and with input from the La Mesa residents, the Livable La Mesa project will prepare a plan to help make La Mesa a community for all ages.
