I got this idea from another meetup. I imagine there are going to be several meetup groups there...
** A FREE Event ** San Antonio's Síclovía April 7, 2013.
Bikers and pedestrians from all across San Antonio kick off the first day of Síclovía.
What is a Síclovía/Ciclovía?
A Síclovía is a non-competitive event that temporarily turns busy city streets into large recreational areas for people to enjoy. The street can be used for anything from bicycling and jogging to skateboarding and dodge ball. The idea is to get out, get active and enjoy your community.
This car free day is an opportunity for people to enjoy their city in a new way. It gives them opportunity to ride down a major street on a bike with thier family with out the fear of cars.
Along the Síclovía route there are areas called Reclovías. Reclovías are areas reserved for physical activity, exhibitors, performances and activity demonstrations, designed to get people moving. In addition to group exercise classes, Reclovias often include, live music, food vendors and many other healthy events.
Siclovia does a number of things for communities. It promotes:
◦Physical activity and healthy lifestyles
◦Families exercising and playing together
◦Economic growth in the area
◦Active transportation (walking, bicycling)
