ciCLEvia is coming to Cleveland in Summer 2016!
Finally, Cleveland will join the list of cities from all over the world in hosting open street events! Open streets, also called ciclovias (a Spanish term that means "cycleways"), are family-oriented, neighborhood-based programs that are accessible to all residents. Streets are closed to cars and open to the public, enabling people to walk, jog, bike, and skate in the streets with a focus on health and social engagement.
Be a part of our very first meeting.
ciCLEvia will be holding its first community meeting to hear from residents and let them know how they can be involved. Please join us at this very important meeting. See event time / location details above.
More about ciCLEvia
ciCLEvia will debut in the Clark-Fulton and Ohio City neighborhoods along W. 25th Street from Lorain Avenue to MetroHealth Drive.
The series is entirely inclusive: everyone from babies to the elderly to experienced cyclists to residents with wheelchairs will benefit directly from participating in the movement. When we open the streets, we hope to find all forms of people-powered movement. From salsa dancing to yoga, from biking to family-friendly games, ciCLEvia will tap into Cleveland’s imagination and encourage people to be active and connect to their community, all while having fun!
