I super love CiclosDias events, which is why I'm so disappointed in myself for not getting this up sooner, but Sunday, October 27th is CiclosDias!!

October 27: Mid City to Become Car-Free Playground for CicloSDias
San Diego Bike Coalition invites the public to support local shops at open streets celebration

On October 27, streets like Adams Avenue in Normal Heights and El Cajon Blvd. in City Heights will close completely to cars, creating a cyclist’s paradise and encouraging residents and tourists to bike, walk, skate or stroll through neighborhood streets. CicloSDias brings people of all ages together in new areas of San Diego each time to support local businesses and enjoy time outdoors.

Live entertainment, activities for kids and food vendors will line the streets instead of the usual motorized vehicle traffic. The event encompasses close to four miles of car-free exploration: click here for the map.

Drawing inspiration from Los Angeles’s CicLAvia and Bogotá’s weekly CiclovĂ­a, CicloSDias brings the public out to open streets to enjoy connecting with communities and local businesses while catching a glimpse of what streets would be like without car traffic. CicloSDias participants will get to rediscover their neighborhood in a more intimate and unique way.

CicloSDias first rolled through San Diego in 2013 in North Park. Since then, the Bike Coalition has engaged community partners, city officials, local businesses and neighbors to host six additional open-streets celebrations in beach and inland communities across San Diego County.

This year, CicloSDias is a partnership between the Bike Coalition and:
The City of San Diego
County of San Diego
The California Office of Traffic Safety
San Diego Police Department
Adams Avenue Business Association
City Heights Community Development Corporation
