Love To Roll destination: Miramar Ciclovía

‘What is a Ciclovía?’ you say. I’m glad you asked!

Ciclovía is a phenomenon that is taking the world by storm. It’s a simple concept – close a road to cars and open it to people. Free of traffic, Ciclovía allows people to experience their city in a whole new way.

From its roots in Colombia, to downtown Los Angeles, to Melbourne, to Waiheke Island, Ciclovía has finally made it to Wellington!

On Sunday 16 February from 1pm – 5pm, 3.5 kilometers of the Miramar Peninsula, from Shelly Bay to Scorching Bay, will be open for walkers, cyclists, and people on rollerblades, push scooters and in wheelchairs. It will be an opportunity to enjoy this lovely part of the Great Harbour Way without having to worry about traffic. A perfect occasion for families, people of all ages – bring your football / kite / frisbee / picnic – and grab coffee at the Chocolate Fish or Scorch-o-Rama cafes.
