From their website UptownCiclovia.org:

Dallas’ first large scale Ciclovía will be held in Uptown from 10am – 3pm on Memorial Day, May 26, 2014! Together with the Metropolitan Dallas YMCA, Uptown will host a one-mile, car-free route to connect the Katy Trail to the Klyde Warren Park via Cedar Springs Road.

Ciclovías, translated as “bicycle path,” and also known as Open Streets in the United States, are one-of-a-kind, free events that bring a City together to enjoy all things outdoors- running, biking, roller-skating, strollers, etc.

Ciclovías have been successfully happening and gaining momentum for years in world-class cities around the country, including: Fort Worth, San Antonio, Austin, Miami, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Oklahoma City, Denver, Durham, and Atlanta. It’s time for Dallas to host our own!

In these cities, those along Open Streets routes have enjoyed positive impacts on their businesses by participating in the family-friendly event. We invite you to join us as we create an open space that will connect people with their city in a fun, safe, and clean environment!
