June 24th, 2018 will mark Winnipeg’s 9th Ciclovia event and the first year that it will be a part of Bike Week. This exciting event, which has long been a part of ManyFest, hosted by the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ, needed to expand to serve its diverse participants from across our great city. So, the Ciclovia Committee was looking for a new home for this event and couldn’t think of a better place than our week-long celebration of active transportation and bikes. This year it will be hosted at The Forks where there will be activities for all ages, including demonstrations, group rides, bike repairs, a beer garden, and much much more!
Ciclovia is a Spanish term that means “cycleway”. 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, Bike Week will invite Winnipeggers from across Winnipeg 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/lane closures.
