Living Streets Alliance is pleased to announce the return of Cyclovia Tucson, presented by Banner—University Medicine, on Sunday, March 29th from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
During the event, approximately 4.5 miles of Tucson and City of South Tucson streets will become temporarily transformed into car-free, linear parks connecting people to business districts Downtown and along South Fourth Avenue, schools like Drachman K-8, Ochoa Community School, and Mission View Elementary, green spaces like Santa Rita Park, Santa Rosa Park, and the newly completed sections of the El Paso & Southwestern Greenway, the iconic St. Augustine Cathedral and Pima County’s Joel D. Valdez Library at Jacomé Plaza.
The route will feature several activity hubs where people can listen to live music, participate in a free fitness class, engage in creative and educational activities around water conservation, sample local food from vendors and restaurants, shop a local farmer’s market, and experience historic neighborhoods, iconic Tucson architecture, and explore business districts from an entirely different perspective–outside of their cars, on two feet or on two wheels.
This is the seventeenth Cyclovia Tucson event and is presented by Banner—University Medicine, the title sponsor and official medical partner for Cyclovia Tucson. Christina Geare, Director of Regional Marketing and Public Relations at Banner—University Medicine says, “Supporting Cyclovia Tucson – a beloved community event that gets people off their screens and outdoors to engage in physical activity and connect as human beings – is a way to demonstrate Banner—University Medicine’s commitment to community health and wellness.”
There’s still time to join the fun as an activity partner, but time is running out! Businesses, organizations, community groups, clubs, and vendors are encouraged to contact Living Streets Alliance now to participate in or become a sponsor of the March 29th event.

We are basing our decisions on the latest information and advisories as they are released from Federal, State and Local governments.
