The five goals of Ciclovía Salinas are to promote physical activity, unite the community, create a positive city image, stimulate the local economy, and most importantly to develop youth leadership.
Through Ciclovía Salinas, over sixty high school youth temporary transform 1.6 miles of Alisal Street in Salinas into a car-less space, allowing residents to utilize the streets – participating in a wide range of physical activities, such as running, walking, biking, Zumba, as well as free access to a family day filled with hands-on activities. We also invite community organizations to provide free resources and services to the community, such as free flu vaccines, and helmets. This past year, our event was a huge success with over 5,000 participants.
Ciclovía would not have been possible without the help of all the adult (18+)volunteers!
Be on the lookout for future volunteer opportunities with Ciclovía Salinas.
