Go play in the street San Antonio!

Beats $4 gas...

 

Leicalady and I had a difficult time imagining 2 miles of a major street in downtown San Antonio free of cars, trucks and big city buses. We HAD to check out the first Siclovia event which was held last October. We were not disappointed! Live music, local food vendors, bicycle training classes and transit demonstrations dotted the route. We loved the fact that Siclovia was so pet friendly…

 

 

Sunday, March 4, 2012 will be the second Siclovia event in San Antonio. The city-wide celebration is a joint venture by the City of S.A. and the YMCA. Broadway (major downtown street) will be closed for more than 2 miles to traffic. Participants are welcome to bike, run, walk, jog, skate and just “play in the street” without worrying about vehicular traffic. Venues will be set up in adjacent parks – providing water, restrooms and pet stations. Exhibitors will offer free yoga and zumba classes. Healthy food booths will be available along the route. The idea is to encourage family activity and bring awareness to the obesity problem that plagues the Alamo City. For more information check out their website.

  1. Really nice photos – Dallas had its first Ciclovia last weekend – they shut down a long bridge/causeway leading into downtown. It was a lot of fun and I hope the city makes it an annual thing.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks for visiting my blog. San Antonio now has two events scheduled every year…progress!
