Cyclovia Tucson This Weekend (Video)

The second Cyclovia event of 2017 takes place on Sunday, Oct. 29, at 10 a.m. The main route follows South 12th Avenue from 39th Street through the City of South Tucson to Mission Manor Park, approximately 3.75 miles. It passes through a thriving business district and some of Tucson’s most well-established neighborhoods. Along the way, there will be activity hubs, food trucks and refreshments, booths and services, interactive displays and community groups, school and business participation, and much more.

City of Tucson departments — Tucson Water and Environmental & General Services —  will be located near Wyoming Street, with partners from Arizona Project WET and SERI, and the mobile water purification semi-truck will be open for mini-tours.

“Cyclovia” is a Spanish word signifying the temporary closure of a network of streets to cars so that they become open to people. The event, which began in 2010, is hosted by Living Streets Alliance.

Off-duty Tucson Police Department officers volunteer to block the streets and redirect traffic during the event.
