Cyclovia (Open Streets)

WHAT IS CYCLOVIA?

Cyclovia (also referred to as Ciclovía or Open Streets) is based on the Spanish word for “cycle path.” Ciclovía is a weekly tradition that started in Bogotá, Colombia, which temporarily closes major city streets to car traffic and converts them into safe and open, car-free environments for families to run, bike, play and be well together.

The practice has become a worldwide phenomenon reaching Australia, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Israel, India and dozens of cities across the United States. Cyclovia is a celebration of physical activity, healthy movement, and active transportation. Starting in 2014, the Florida Department of Transportation and our community partners began hosting Cyclovia events in the Tampa Bay area!
