Providence will have 3 cyclovía events this year, the first takes place this Sunday on Broad Street in South Providence. Details from the City:
Cyclovía is a car-free event that opens the street for people of all ages to walk, skate, run, bicycle, exercise, and socialize. The event is sponsored by Mayor Taveras in collaboration with the City’s Healthy Communities Office and the Providence Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission.
“Cyclovía provides Providence residents with a safe and fun environment that promotes cycling, walking and community interaction – all elements of a healthy, balanced lifestyle,” said Mayor Angel Taveras. “Residents from across the city will have the opportunity to enjoy their neighborhoods and to experience the great things that Providence has to offer.”
Providence held its first-ever Cyclovía in September 2012 on Broad Street. In 2013, the City of Providence expanded Cyclovías to Valley Street in Olneyville and Hope Street on the East Side.
