SAN ANTONIO - While the rest of the city drove by around them, they took it easy.

They walked. They rode. And they rolled.

Thousands of San Antonians decided to leave their cars behind and drift through Siclovia.

The city event is designed to give people a chance to try out healthy living.

The city closed off Boradway from Brackenridge Park to McCullough and set up dozens of sites for exercising, games and healthy eating.

People are encouraged to leave their cars for a day, and thousands walked, rode bikes and even rollerbladed along the vehicle-free Broadway.

About 40,000 turned out Sunday for the second Siclovia the city's staged.

The first drew about 15,000 back in October.
