Cyclovia participants take advantage of car-free streets

The streets of Tucson are temporarily closed on Oct. 29 for Cyclovia. Cyclovia is a program of Living Streets Alliance, a nonprofit organization working to transform Tucson.

Cyclovia is a movement that has taken place every year since 2012 in Tucson that gives the community a glimpse of what the city can look like if car dependency was limited.  Anyone can walk or bike in Tucson’s car-free trails to support the reclamation of safe, walkable  streets. Vendors, local businesses and volunteers contributed to making this event possible; there was a chance to win prizes, play “Cinco de Cyclovia” bingo and meet new people at stops along Fontana Avenue and Fourth Avenue. Safety was also top priority in Cyclovia, with volunteers making sure the streets were car free and helmets were also being given to anyone who needed one. Cyclovia is a program of Living Streets Alliance, who advocates for making Tucson a place of community and connection.
