Living Streets Alliance (LSA) will present Cyclovia Tucson, Tucson’s biannual “open streets” event on Sunday, April 2, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cyclovia Tucson attracts tens of thousands of people to enjoy 2.5 miles of car-free city streets for one day. During a five-hour period, participants are invited to walk, bike, dance, explore, discover and play along the route. The event is free and open to the public, and there is no official start or finish. The event is a chance for Tucsonans of all ages and abilities to reconnect with their fellow neighbors and rediscover details of their city that are best enjoyed on foot and on bike.
During the event, motorists driving in this area may experience traffic delays associated with this event, so please plan accordingly. The traveling public should use caution when driving, bicycling or walking in this area. Please watch for event participants, obey all traffic control, and watch for detour signs and personnel providing traffic control.
