A community tradition returns to Tucson this weekend. The Fall Cyclovia will be held on Sunday.
It’s a chance for people to use city streets for walking, cycling, skateboarding, and more.
Emily Yetman with Living Streets Alliance notes when you remove cars from the street, neighborhoods become special.
“There’s not that constant noise of traffic, you hear people chatting off in the distance, kids laughing and playing," she said. "There are such rich sounds that otherwise get drowned out by the hustle and bustle of everyday life.”
This year’s Fall Cyclovia route runs north and south, from downtown to the Amphitheater High School neighborhood. Fourth Avenue and Fontana Avenue will be the main thoroughfares that will be closed for the event.
Participants will find food trucks, music, and other cultural happenings along the way. The Cyclovia runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
