San Juan Hosts City's First Ciclovia

CU with San Juan Mayor and City StaffA great thing in Texas just got a little bit greater-- the City of San Juan held their first Open Streets (Ciclovía) event on Saturday, April 12. Over 200 residents of San Juan turned out to enjoy a car-free stroll, run, ride, or play through town.

Mercedes Benz of San Juan donated 120 children's helmets to give away for free during the event, and the Ciclistas Urbanos bicycle group of Edinburg, including BikeTexas Board Member Mark Peña, was on hand along with to help fit the helmets on excited little heads.

San Juan is the first city in the upper Rio Grande Valley to host a ciclovía, and already has plans for even bigger and better events in the future. Read more about the event here.
