Hello all you active people and organizations!


The Downtown BIZ is set to put on a huge event SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 13 promoting biking, walking, active transportation and healthy living. It’s called CICLOVIA and it’s a BROADWAY STREET FESTIVAL.


This is a chance for you to march to the beat of those who love to be active – engaging in cycling, walking, running, & blading – as a natural part of their everyday healthy lifestyle and hit up some newbies as well! Come promote yourself & your services to the hundreds of people that are sure to travel the Broadway strip and help promote alternative transportation and active living!


CICLOVIA is an event that supports the use of non-motorized transportation! We’re closing down the entire north side of Broadway to motor-vehicle traffic from Osborne all the way to Main Street – with a connection from Assiniboine Park all the way to the Forks – so that people can walk, bike, rollerblade, skate, run, jump, parkour, or skip on down!


Ciclovia, meaning “bike way,” is an event whereby a significant city street – the entire north side of Broadway from Osborne to Main – is temporarily closed to automobiles to allow dominance by non-motorized traffic. This closure will be part of the day’s active transportation-friendly route connecting all the way from Assiniboine park right down to the Forks!


Ciclovia combines healthy living with arts and culture and engages citizens in active alternatives to motorized transportation, bringing life and community bonding back to otherwise car choked streets. Attendees will enjoy one of the city’s most beautiful districts, taking in live entertainment, food, unique visual displays, family activities, and more!


There’s NO COST to participate, however there are sponsorship opportunities for those who’d like to support in more ways than one! The sky’s the limit on ways you can get your message out so be sure to come out and support!
