CiQlovía means open streets.

CiQlovía is the Albuquerque version of the global phenomenon known as ciclovía or open streets.

The word refers to events where city streets are closed to cars and opened up to people on foot and on bike, outdoor exercise classes, shopping, live music and other activities.

CiQlovía is for our entire community.

CiQlovía is a FREE event designed to encourage ALL burqueños and visitors to enjoy our beautiful city and unique neighborhoods.

It is an opportunity for juniors, seniors and inbetweeners to safely enjoy activities in the street.

CiQlovía is about envisioning our future.

CiQlovía will be an opportunity to stimulate a community conversation about bicycle and pedestrian issues and public health issues, while also stimulating the local economy and encouraging active lifestyles.

This event will also highlight local businesses, improve community livability, and serve as an opportunity to reimagine our largest public space – streets!
