The fall edition of Síclovía returns Sunday, which means streets north of downtown San Antonio will close to create safe spaces for an estimated crowd of as many as 70,000 bicyclists, pedestrians, rollerbladers, runners and skateboarders.
Síclovía, hosted by the YMCA of Greater San Antonio twice a year, is set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and encourages all sorts of physical activity among San Antonians in a safe, car-free environment. The route is family-friendly, handicap-accessible and non-competitive. Sunday’s Síclovía will be the 20th event since it first started in 2011.
Beginning at 9 a.m., the Síclovía route will close starting at North Main Avenue near San Antonio College and down Lexington Avenue to Augusta Street. The route will continue on Brooklyn Avenue and North Alamo Street and will stop at Maverick Park on Broadway and Jones Avenue. The route reopens at 3 p.m.
