It’s time to REGISTER TO VOLUNTEER! Last year, LiveWell Colorado and BikeDenver hosted Denver’s first ciclovia, which is a Spanish word that means bike path. Based on a long-standing tradition from South America and abroad, our ciclovia has it’s own Colorado flair, which makes it feel like a vacation right at home! If you didn’t make it out to last year’s super successful inaugural event, you don’t want to miss it this time around! Beautiful 23rd Avenue in northeast Denver is closed to car traffic for six hours on Sunday, August 12 and bicyclists, walkers, skaters, strollers and all modes of non-motorized traffic are invited to enjoy the culture of a street that is full of life!
Discover the potential our city streets have to be places where people come together and engage in healthy, community activity. This transformation makes us, our families, local businesses and our neighborhoods stronger! All along the street, from City Park on the west end to Thomas Park in Stapleton on the east end, you will meet other people laughing together, eating healthy, delicious food, trying new activities and learning fun skills.
Bring friends, family, neighbors, kids and dogs! To find out more, visit Viva Streets 2012
