On Sunday, June 14, 2015 the residents of New Brunswick came together once again for the second Ciclovia event of the year. This free event, sponsored by New Brunswick Tomorrow, the City of New Brunswick, Johnson & Johnson and Rutgers University, closed the city streets from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. so that residents and visitors could participate in over a dozen activities spanning over a three mile route. The purpose of Ciclovia is to promote a community of health and wellbeing through a multitude of physical activities and health awareness initiatives. Healthy activities included group fitness classes, a pop-up skate park, an inflatable water slide, a splash zone to cool down, live music, health screenings and more. Attendees were encouraged to visit and participate in each activity – making their way by walking, running, biking or skating along the course.
Ciclovias originated in Bogotá, Colombia and have since emerged throughout the world to champion for a healthier lifestyle for all. The New Brunswick Ciclovia has been going strong since its inception in 2013 and shows no sign of slowing down with thousands attending the event throughout the year. The next New Brunswick Ciclovia will take place on October 4, 2015. To learn more about Ciclovia visit www.NewBrunswickCiclovia.com.SHARE:
