Cyclovia (also known as ciclovía or “open streets”) is a ground-breaking activity that began in Bogota, Colombia, where major city streets are temporarily closed and re-purposed into safe and open, car-free environments. Cycolvia Downtown Tampa will include bicycle/pedestrian safety training presentations, helmet fitting stations, “pop-up” interactive street games, food trucks, “slow” bike races, and other activities to promote safety and awareness of bicycles and pedestrians on roadways in Florida. More information about the Cyclovia including schedule, directions/parking instructions, group-ride meet-up locations, volunteer opportunities, and SR 60 and US 41 Business detour information can be found at www.CycloviaTampaBay.com.
