Early morning rain and the threat of it later in the afternoon likely kept many from attending the first Uptown Ciclovia. None-the-less, you have to start somewhere and many did make it out for the event. The route along Cedar Springs Road connected Klyde Warren Park with Katy Trail, the prized jewels in the city as far as outdoor activities go.
Ciclovías, translated as “bicycle path” and also known as Open Streets bring a city together to enjoy all things outdoors- running, biking, roller-skating, strollers, etc. Maybe by next year’s event Dallas will have undone the helmet law and installed bike-share.
Here’s a video.
