Boulder Green Streets annual Sept. 27

Boulder Green Streets and the City of Boulder to host annual Boulder Ciclovia Sept. 27

 Boulder Green Streets and the City of Boulder will present the fifth annual Boulder Ciclovia, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 27. The event features several miles of temporary car-free streets open for the community to engage in healthy, active and sustainable activities. http://www.bouldergreenstreets.org/

Two major activity zones connect the route: Pearl Street between 15th and 17th streets, and the North Boulder Recreation Center at 3170 Broadway.  Activities will be free and include live music, dance, arts, fitness and recreation. There will also be opportunities to learn about local sustainability efforts, enjoy local and natural foods, and explore outdoor adventure gear and more. To get between the zones along the designated routes associated with this one-day event, visitors must walk, bike, or use other alternative modes of transportation.

For more information about Boulder Ciclovia and a full schedule of events, visitwww.BoulderGreenStreets.org. Road closures information is available atwww.BoulderConeZones.net.

Many U.S. cities have adopted this concept, calling them Sunday Parkways, Summer Streets and various other names.

The most famous Ciclovia occurs in Bogota, Colombia, every Sunday, where 70 miles of major arterials are shut down and 2 million people take to the street to walk, bike and play.
