NEW BRUNSWICK  – New Brunswick Ciclovia will open its 2018 season on Sunday, April 22 for another fun day of open streets and active living for all. 

Now in its fifth year, New Brunswick Ciclovia is a family-friendly event that emphasizes healthy living and community building by opening our streets and offering programming for all to enjoy. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., more than three miles of roads throughout New Brunswick will become temporarily car-free throughout a route without a beginning or an end. 

Participants are free to travel in any way they choose, whether it be walking, running, biking, skateboarding or dancing.

Six Activity Zones will be set up along the way, featuring activities in the themes of art, fitness, health and wellness, culture and safety. Enjoy games, fitness demonstrations, live music, inflatables, dance performances, health information and a lot more as you travel the route. 

The first New Brunswick Ciclovia of 2018 will also feature the inaugural date of Mercado Esperanza in Joyce Kilmer Park, a community marketplace replete with local vendors, art and music. 

Free water stations and bike repair stations will be set up along the route. 

The route will span parts of College Avenue, Hamilton Street, George Street, Paterson Street, Bayard Street and Joyce Kilmer Avenue. 

Ciclovia (sih-clō-via) is an international-observed healthy living and open streets event in which roads are closed to vehicles and open to families, friends and neighbors to join together in healthy activities. 

New Brunswick Ciclovia is a community collaborative organized by the City of New Brunswick, New Brunswick Tomorrow, Johnson & Johnson, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Rutgers University, with assistance from more than two dozen additional community organizations. 

New Brunswick Ciclovia’s goal of fostering a community of health and wellness continues to grow, as last year, more than 11,000 residents and visitors took to the streets as part of the New Brunswick Ciclovia movement. 

Community members who want more information on New Brunswick Ciclovia or wish to volunteer at the event are encouraged to visit www.newbrunswickciclovia.com. Follow the event at #NBCiclovia.
