San Antonio's Second Siclovia Draws 40,000

Siclovia-Broadway

On a beautiful sunny Sunday in the first weekend of March 2012, a sea of people filled Broadway Street in downtown San Antonio for San Antonio's second Siclovia.

People came out to "Play in the Street." While the first Ciclovia had over 15,000 people, more than 40,000 people biked, skated, ran, walked or wheeled their way up and down the two-mile stretch of open boulevard.

Siclovia's purpose is to get people outdoors and physically active. Siclovia is helping San Antonio develop a more fit culture and it's working. "My daughter and I rented bikes at the Pearl, rode up and down Broadway and had a blast with 40,000 of our best friends," wrote Mary Ullmann Japhet.

Siclovia-A-to-Z

Siclovia's entire focus is free family fun. As a result, you won't find beer or fried foods at Siclovia. It is a fun fitness festival that creates one of the city's largest open air physical activity areas. The response is overwhelmingly positive. "No alcohol makes a great time for families," added Jon Mason.

Bicyclists loved the event because they felt safe. "Siclovia was once again a truly beautiful thing. Thank you!" commented Robert Waddell

US Congressman Lloyd Doggett rides a BikeTexas Trek during the March 2012 ciclovia in San AntonioSan Antonio's Siclovia is now established as the largest Siclovia in Texas. As a result of San Antonio's Siclovia, the cities of Austin, Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth are all planning their own versions based on San Antonio's success.

One special guest at this Siclovia was US Congressman Lloyd Doggett (D-Austin), who's new district includes parts of San Antonio for the next election in November 2012. Congressman Doggett had a great time riding up and down the street and talking with future constituents.
