WHAT IS UPTOWN CICLOVÍA?

Ciclovías turn major city streets into safe and open, car-free environments for families to run, bike, play and be well together. Originating in Bogota, Colombia over 30 years ago, Ciclovías are now held in hundreds of cities worldwide. Dallas' second annual Ciclovía will be held in Uptown on Sunday, May 17, 2015 from 10 am – 3 pm! Together with the Metropolitan Dallas YMCA, Uptown will host a one-mile, car-free route to connect the Katy Trail to the Klyde Warren Park via Cedar Springs Road.

More Info

Dallas' second annual Ciclovía will be held in Uptown on Sunday, May 17, 2015 from 10 am – 3 pm! Together with the Metropolitan Dallas YMCA, Uptown will host a one-mile, car-free route to connect the Katy Trail to the Klyde Warren Park via Cedar Springs Road.

Ciclovías, translated as “bicycle path,” and also known as Open Streets in the United States, are one-of-a-kind, free events that bring a City together to enjoy all things outdoors- running, biking, roller-skating, strollers, etc.

Ciclovías have been successfully happening and gaining momentum for years in world-class cities around the country, including: Fort Worth, San Antonio, Austin, Miami, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Oklahoma City, Denver, Durham, and Atlanta. It’s time for Dallas to host our own!

In these cities, those along Open Streets routes have enjoyed positive impacts on their businesses by participating in the family-friendly event. We invite you to join us as we create an open space that will connect people with their city in a fun, safe, and clean environment!
