April 20th, 2012 | Categories: Events | 1 comment

From Park to Park Go Where No Ciclovía Has Gone Before 

The Roland Park Civic League, Keswick Multi Care Center and Baltimore City BMore Streets for People Program will host a fifth ciclovía on Saturday, May 5, 2012, from noon to 4 P.M. In this “Park to Park” car-free event, vehicular traffic will be diverted from southbound Roland Avenue and West University Parkway, as well as Tudor Arms Avenue, Beech Avenue and Wyman Park Drive, allowing participants to bike, skate or walk a three-mile course from Roland Park to Druid Hill Park. Also collaborating in this first multi-neighborhood ciclovía are Friends of Druid Hill Park; the Rolden, Hoes Heights, Wyman Park, Hampden and Remington neighborhood associations; the City of Baltimore; and Johns Hopkins University

Local bike shops will be on hand during the ciclovía to tune bikes along the course and instruct children on bicycling safety. Back by popular demand, Bike Maryland will organize kids’ bike safety rodeos.

Participants are also invited to join the Tunes @ The Tower festivities at the Roland Water Tower at the intersection of Roland Avenue and West University Parkway. From noon to 3 P.M., there will be live music, games, a kids’ bike decorating workshop, a raffle and fabulous food, all offered by the Friends of the Roland Water Tower. Be on hand at 2 P.M. for special announcements. Proceeds will help refurbish this century-old City landmark. 

Through its BMore Streets for People Program, Baltimore is one of scores of cities worldwide developing ciclovía programs. More than a thousand people have participated in each of the four previous Roland Park ciclovías. Come and be a part of Ciclovía 5, the longest event of its kind to date in Baltimore.

    Awesome work to get this organized. Too bad the routes of the ciclovia and the Kinetic Sculpture race couldn’t overlap on that grand day for biking!
