New Expanded Route

Ciclovia in Baltimore

Ciclovia in Baltimore

For the second year in a row, Baltimore will host a ciclovia–a day when streets are closed to cars and open only to bicycles and pedestrians.  Roland Avenue will be closed, as well as a second street, 33rd Street between Druid Hill Park and Lake Montebello.

The ciclovia, to be held October 31,  was first organized by the Roland Park Civic League as “Sunday Streets” on Oct. 23, 2009.  The event has grown, as have many similar events accross the United States, including Summer Streets in New York City.  This year’s Baltimore Ciclovia is being co-sponsored by the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhoods, making it a city event.  In the future, there may be as many as four such events each year.  The BMore Streets for People Coalition, a group of community and business leaders, is working with the city to sponsor such a series of Sunday morning ciclovias.

The ciclovia will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Roland Avenue route will connect with the 33rd Street route.   Ride ‘em if you got ‘em.

A Touch of Bogota in Oakland – Oaklavia

Ciclovia in Bogota

Ciclovia in Bogota

Walk Oakland/Bike Oakland (WOBO) has brought a touch of Bogota bicycle culture to Oakland.   A Sunday Streets event–Oaklavia–of the type known for Bogota but now in cities around the world, will be launched this summer in Oakland.  The event will open city streets to recreation, making them free of cars for the hours of the event.  Walking, cycling, rollerblading, or just sitting and talking or playing games are all encouraged.  Free group events such as tai chi, yoga, aerobics and other activities are sited along the way.  Bike tune ups and bike safety classes for the entire family will also be available.  The dates for Oaklavia are June 27 and October 10.  The routes can be found on the WOBO web site.  We hope to see many carrier bikes and bakfiets on the roads.
