The time has finally arrived for Boulder’s very first Ciclovìa-inspired event! And trust us, you don’t want to miss this momentous occasion. Mark your calendars for September 19th and join us along eastern Pearl Street between 15th and Folsom for a heaping dose of fun. With your help we can continue to expand the route!
The included streets will be closed off to all through traffic—that’s right, people—and you’ll have the chance to walk, bike, run, skate or dance your way freely along the route. Plus, this event features a range of exciting activity zones where you can enjoy a range of delicious food, spirited live music, free yoga classes, and other health- and active-lifestyle-based entertainment.
This is your chance to become part of the Green Streets Revolution. So let’s all come together, ditch the cars, and prove that there are better ways to fill to our streets than with traffic.
The History of Ciclovia....
The most famous Ciclovìa occurs every Sunday in Bogota, Colombia where an astounding 70 miles of major city streets are shut down and handed over to two million bike-riding, road-running, game-playing citizens.
Challenging the assumption that major streets exist only for cars is a powerful stance. As people rethink the use of public spaces, new ideas begin to emerge, which is probably why a number of U.S. cities have adopted the Ciclovìa concept. Across America, these events have been called Sunday Parkways, Summer Streets and various other names. But regardless of what they’re called, it’s always the perfect place for food, fun, friends,
art, culture, and wholehearted enjoyment.
