Winnipeg becomes the first canadian city to adopt Ciclovia!
It’s time to take to the streets Winnipeg!
On Sunday, September 13 from 8am until 6pm, the entire north side of Broadway will be closed to motorized vehicles from Main to Osborne connecting Assiniboine Park to The Forks for Ciclovia.
Ciclovia, meaning “bike way,” began in Bogotá, Colombia, where every Sunday major roads are blocked off and millions of people fill them running, walking, biking while enjoying free outdoor fitness classes like yoga and aerobics.
Ciclovia events have been held all over the world, but have yet to hit Canadian streets until now. Although talks exist for a Vancouver Ciclovia, Winnipeg will be the first!
Numerous organizations are hoping to make this a regular event in Winnipeg, and are hosting this pilot project to gauge public interest.
