Walk + Bike Carlsbad Events for April

Carlsbad CA— The City of Carlsbad, Circulate San Diego and the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition are partnering on Walk + Bike Carlsbad, a campaign to promote walking and biking in Carlsbad. The 12-month effort, funded with a grant by the San Diego Association of Governments, will encourage more walking and biking throughout the city, with a special emphasis on the Village area.

The San Diego Association of Governments provides “active transportation” grants to support the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, alleviate traffic congestion and improve public health throughout the region. The Walk + Bike Carlsbad campaign will serve as a model for the San Diego region to be replicated in other cities for similar campaigns.

The campaign will include events, outreach to schools, business promotions and other activities throughout the year. Casual walk and bike “meetups” will be held on a regular basis, along with bicycle rodeos and safety workshops. More details about these events can be found on the campaign website at www.carlsbadca.gov/walkbike.

Event Map

Our first dog walk as part of Carlsbad Walks! on Feb. 27, was so much fun and so successful that we cannot wait until the next one.

As before, bring your dog, borrow a dog, or come dog-free and enjoy all the other dogs on this walk in and around the Village. The planned route will be here and there from painted art fire hydrant to fire hydrant for about an hour. Distance is a little hard to predict and certainly pace will be too. But you will be guaranteed smiles, barks, and wagging tails (both dogs and walkers).

Use the public parking lot just south of Carlsbad Village Drive off State.  It is on the right-hand side of road Oak Avenue.
