YMCA announces route for 12th-annual Siclovia event

Car-free bicycle event will take place on March 26

SAN ANTONIO – The city’s annual Siclovia event aims at bringing the community together by providing a safe and unique way to bicycle or ride on what are ordinarily busy city streets.

On Friday morning, the YMCA announced the route for this year’s Siclovia, is slated to take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 26.

This year, the route will use streets in Southtown and along the World Heritage Trail.

According to organizers, the goal of Siclovia is to provide a safe and fun place for the public to improve their health, enjoy the great outdoors and change how residents experience their city.

“It’s as easy as taking a walk down a city street or riding a bike, or you can stop at ‘reclovias’ along the way and engage in (everything from) exercise classes to yoga classes to hearing from other community partners about events that are available in your community,” YMCA San Antonio President and CEO Sandra Morander said.

Siclovia allows city streets to become temporarily car-free for the public to enjoy a safe bike ride or jogging workout.
