I n 2010 a small but mighty group of people with diverse interests sat down together to figure out how to bring open streets to the Tucson re- gion. The concept of cyclovas streets that are temporarily closed to cars was taking off across North America and this group wanted to figure out how to bring the concept here. THE GOALS FOR CYCLOVIA TUCSON WERE Enhance the brand and identity of Greater Tucson as a progressive urban community Increase the health and activity of Greater Tucson area residents Promote and increase awareness for cycling and walking as an acceptable and safe mode of travel on public streets Increase neighborhood mobility livability and access Provide a unique and sociable fun experience for citizens Provide a free public event affordable for all 26 BikeLife Tucson Taking It to the Streets Car-free Care-free Cyclovia Tucson April 10th NewRoutes More Neighborhoods Music foodvendors CLIMBING WALL Funfor Kids BikeRepairClinics NewRoutes More Neighborhoods Music foodvendors CLIMBING WALL Funfor Kids BikeRepairClinics Now in 2016 Living Streets Alliance has decided the time has come to expand Cyclovia into new neighborhoods. Bringing the event to peoples front doors has always been important to the event organizers as it provides opportunity to explore the city outside of a car get to know neighbors better and try out active transportation walking or bik- ing to nearby destinations. In 2016 Living Streets Alliance plans to bring Cyclovia to new neighbor- hoods with brand new routes. The first event will take place on Sunday April 10th from 10 am to 3 pm and will connect the Lost Barrio the neighborhood just east of downtown and south of Broadway also referred to as Barrio San Antonio to Himmel Park. The 2.5 mile route boasts a wide variety of popular destinations including Himmel Park Sam Hughes Elementary School Miles Exploratory Learning Center as well as hidden gems such as the Lost Barrio historic shopping district Barrio Trails BMX park and the Arroyo Chico parks and multi-use paths. Several activities are planned for the day including the Sam Hughes Neigh- borhood Garden Tour and a Porch Fest along East Ninth Street in the Rincon Heights Neighborhood. The Earth Day Festival will also join Cyclovia Tucson and will set up its earth-friendly demonstrations and exhibitors inside Himmel Park. There are plenty of ways to participate in Cyclovia Tucson by volunteering hosting an activity or just bringing your family or friends and joining us for the day on your bike trike scooter skates or feet
