Episode 8

Episode 8 of City Walk blasts across America from the skies above Camarillo to a racetrack in Fontana and straight to Washington DC where the 2013 Walking Summit is paving the path for a more walkable future for everyone.

Have you ever wanted to stroll around a NASCAR speedway but were afraid of becoming road kill? Join a group of intrepid fans as they take a walk on the wild side and experience a rush you can only get on your own two feet.

Most people think that once a road is paved it's the end of the story, but in some neighborhoods things are changing. Join us on a special walking tour where we experience first hand the many innovations taking place on our streets and sidewalks to make them more pedestrian friendly.

What happens when hundreds of people gather in our nation's capital to exchange ideas, share solutions and dream about a reimagined America, where Everybody Walks? We take you center stage and behind the scenes of the very first Walking Summit where we'll meet the leaders, planners, and developers who are dedicated to bringing our country literally back on its feet.

Some people walk on sidewalks, others prefer trails but one man gets his thrill walking two miles high in the sky and freefalling to the ground at 120 miles per hour... feet first.
