Roll out to Ciclovia in downtown Pensacola
PENSACOLA, Fla. (WEAR) —
Last March, 10,000 people brought their bicycles, skateboards, strollers, and feet to downtown Pensacola for Cicolvia - Pensacola Open Streets, and now the event is making a comeback for 2018!
Ciclovia is part of a unique international movement that closes downtown streets to cars and opens them up to the community to be active and fun.
The event encourages and promotes safe physical activity with others while exploring the downtown area.
On March 24, a large portion of downtown will be closed to cars and open to bicyclists, pedestrians, runners, and more from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Road closures will include Palafox Place from Romana Street to Plaza De Luna, and Main Street from the Community Maritime Park to Bartram Park.
There will be several activities organized by Ciclovia that are free!
“Over the last decade, Pensacola has really reinvented itself as an urban center,” said Ciclovia chairman Rand Hicks. “The return of restaurants, retail and professionals has followed public and private investment in places like the Community Maritime Park and Plaza de Luna, the renovation of many historic buildings, as well as good sidewalks and pedestrian-friendly traffic rules."
