    Tens of thousands of fun-loving folks will take to the car-free streets to enjoy free activities, music, games, food, dancing and more at Cyclovia Tucson on Sunday, April 2nd from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

    This spring’s closed-street route will connect Tucson’s historic El Presidio area with the Main library, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the home of Living Streets cycloviaAlliance, and Healthy South Tucson’s 6th Annual Health Fair. Walk, skate, bike, dance, skip, meet your neighbors, make new friends and most of all, smile and enjoy the fantastic opportunity this event provides for all ages to have a wonderful time.
     
    At the Pima County Department of Environmental Quality’s (PDEQ) booth you can toot your own earth-friendly horn, test your environmental acumen on the “Spin & Learn” wheel of wisdom for a fun prize, or take the “drive-less” pledge for a chance to win $100 gift card.

    Other Pima County Departments presenting engaging educational activities include: Natural Resources Parks and Recreation, Regional Wastewater Reclamation Department, the Department of Transportation's engineering staff, the Pima County Library BookBike, and Pima Animal Care Center. These activity booths will be located near the Main Library on Church between Alameda and Pennington.
     
    Living Streets Alliance has been presenting Cyclovia Tucson to the Tucson community for seven years and it has grown to one of the region’s largest events, drawing over 20,000 people celebrating car-free and care-free streets. PDEQ’s Clean Air Program is a sponsor of Cyclovia because it provides opportunities for people to get out of their vehicles and into alternative modes of transportation.  

    “It is such a fun, air-healthy event. Everyone attends to have a great time, get to know an interesting part of town, and enjoy our amazing desert community,” said Beth Gorman, PDEQ Clean Air Senior Program Manager. “My favorite part of Cyclovia Tucson is seeing all the smiles and the tiny humans gaining self-confidence by learning to negotiate their tricycles or skates on car-free streets alongside family and friends. Their joy is utterly contagious!”
