Come and join Cyclovia 2019! This is an "Open Streets" activity, where selected streets in the downtown core are temporarily closed to car traffic and open to anyone to bike, walk, or run, etc. (e-bikes and scooters are welcome) - any non-car activity. The Cyclovia event will take place from 10 am to 2 pm in Downtown Red Deer on Sunday , August 11, 2019. The Cyclovia Open Street event is free, so it's a great way to get some exercise and enjoy downtown Red Deer. The streets of the downtown core will be temporarily closed (4 hours) to car traffic so people of all ages and abilities can use them for any non-motorized activity such as bicycling, rollerblading, and walking, as well as battery assisted wheeling, including e-bikes and scooters. Satellite Stations at the Kerry Wood Nature Center and the Dawe Library will be open to provide information and maps to the downtown activities as well as bike decorating. Once downtown, participants of Cyclovia will have access to the various shops and restaurants in the area. This year we will have a Pancake Breakfast from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. The cost is a toonie or a donation to the food bank. Activity Zones will include a bike repair cafe, street yoga and many more. There will be commercial and non-commercial vendors as well. The City of Red Deer is providing Cyclovia Red Deer with Zero Waste Stations and Potable Water Stations to make the event as green and environmentally friendly as possible. A bike corral will be provided by the Red Deer Primary Care Network. At the end, if you’re tired, you can load your bike on a city bus and ride home for free!
