Puerto Vallarta Gives Way to the Bicycles

Luis Dominguez - PV Pulse
February 11, 2012

This Sunday morning, February 12, 2012, will mark the beginning of the long-awaited Vía Recreactiva (Recre-Active Way) in Puerto Vallarta.

The city's main road will be closed for cars, giving way to pedestrians, pets, bicycles, skates, and other non-motorized vehicles.

From 8:00 am to 1:00 pm, the Francisco Medina Ascencio Boulevard will become a family-oriented space for the community, a heaven for bike-lovers, skaters and joggers.

The boulevard will be closed from the Sports Stadium to Rio Amazonas Avenue (Fluvial).

The project is part of an important citizen movement that has been organizing nightly bike rides across the city and closing some roads for family rides at Marina Vallarta on Sunday mornings.

The movement is headed by different associations such as Vallarta en Bici, Mundo Ceiba and Bici On, which the main goal is to create a bike culture in the region, and promote the construction of bike lanes in PVR (Puerto Vallarta & Riviera Nayarit).

Closing roads on Sundays is an extended practice all over the continent, with the idea of recovering public spaces for citizens, promoting an eco-healthy culture.

Cities around the world are looking back to the bike for answers to the problems of modern urban life.

PVR has the perfect weather and the spectacular beaches, what if we could reduce the use of cars and enjoy a healthier, greener city too?

See you on Sunday!
