Síclovía

When: Sun., Sept. 27, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 2015

Making recreational use of closed-off city streets since 1976, Colombia’s cycle-centric concept Ciclovía (Spanish for “cycleway”) has inspired adaptations across the globe, with events taking place in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Belgium, Canada, Ecuador, New Zealand, Mexico, Peru and all over the U.S. Launched in 2011, SA’s fast-growing version Síclovía (a collaboration between the YMCA, the Mayor’s Fitness Council and others) was an instant hit and is now considered the Alamo City’s “largest free health and wellness event.” Expected to draw tens of thousands of participants, Síclovía’s latest chapter sees the car-free, kid-friendly outing returning to the Midtown East area to take over 3.25 miles of streets from Broadway to Alamo Plaza and Dignowity Park. Along the route, look for designated Reclovías (stopping points) offering free activities, including a novice cyclist zone, Zumba, yoga, music and vendors with information on healthy lifestyles.
