Ciclovia* is coming September 12, 2010! Now in its second year, Ciclovia is a FREE eco-friendly, healthy-lifestyles festival and active transportation event that will see the north side of Broadway closed from Osborne Street to Main Street, creating a network of car-free streets from Assiniboine Park all the way to The Forks. Cycle, walk, in-line skate, skateboard, scooter... whatever!
Throughout the day, jump into a fitness class, explore the farmers' market, kids' zone, bike demos and craft market, or enjoy music, the RBC Blue Water Zone, and so much more.
Hosted by the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ, with assistance from a variety of community organizations, Ciclovia attracted upwards of 10,000 people in 2009... this year we hope for even more!
Join in the fun!

* Ciclovia, meaning "bike way", is an event that supports the use of non-motorized transportation. It combines healthy living with arts and culture, and engages citizens in active alternatives to motorized transportation, bringing life back to otherwise car-choked streets. And it allows a city to dream of different ways of living well, of other community aspirations in an urban environment.
