Saturday Morning: San Diego Bike Coalition Kicks Off Walk+Bike Carlsbad

Carlsbad CA— The San Diego County Bike Coalition teams up with Circulate SD and the City of Carlsbad to present Walk+Bike Carlsbad: a new campaign promoting walking and biking in the community in place of taking short trips in the car. Walk + Bike launches this Saturday with an educational presentation from the Bike Coalition on best biking practices and a group ride through the community.
The majority of short car trips can easily be replaced with biking and walking if residents feel empowered and educated. With Carlsbad’s new Walk+Bike campaign, the Bike Coalition offers hands-on education to help residents overcome any hurdles preventing them from bicycling and make it a fun and functional transportation alternative.
