June 24th, 2018 marks the 9th Ciclovia event in Winnipeg- and the first year it will be a part of Bike Week 2018! This exciting event, which has long been a part of ManyFest hosted by the Downtown Winnipeg Biz. The Ciclovia committee was looking for a new home for this event and we couldn’t think of a better place than during our week long celebration of active transportation and bikes!

Ciclovia is a Spanish term that means “cycleway”. (Here is how to pronounce it – https://forvo.com/word/ciclov%C3%ADa/) Ciclovia began in Bogotá, Colombia in 1974 and has grown into an event where some streets are blocked off to cars and open to bikes, runners, skaters, and other forms of self-propelled transportation. While Ciclovia in Winnipeg won’t match Bogota’s (not yet anyway) it will be a promotion of great cycling routes and a big party at Winnipeg’s favourite meeting place, the Forks!

On June 24th, we invite you to ride to The Forks along our suggested routes. These are comfortable, family friendly routes that tie existing Sunday street closures on Wellington, Wolseley, Scotia Street and North East Pioneers Greenway and also include our special event day street or lane closures.

At The Forks you can take in activities for all ages, including demonstrations, activities, tabling and a Third+Bird Artisan Market.

Enjoy free salsa dancing, yoga and zumba classes throughout the day all with to the tune of a sweet mix of music by Mama Cutsworth- a dance party for the whole family! Plus special guest musicians TBA!
