Cyclists Get Ready to Ride to Generate Awareness on the Road

Jorge Jimenez - CVB of Riviera Nayarit
November 5, 2016

The “Colectivo Vallarta y Bahía por 1 metros 50” made up of all the cycling groups in the bay area, has begun a permanent campaign to generate road awareness in the region. It will be launched with a massive ride programmed for Sunday, November 13, 2016.

The community ride will begin at 8:00 am at the Plaza Lago Real in Nuevo Vallarta and will head out on Federal Highway 200 all the way to Los Arcos del Malecón in Puerto Vallarta, with a pit stop at the whales in Marina Vallarta at approximately 9:20 am.

The invitation is open to anyone who enjoys riding their bicycles and agrees with the idea that all users of the roadways deserve to go about their business safely and respectfully.

This social movement is mostly concerned with keeping the community informed and thus making and keeping the roads in Bahía de Banderas and Puerto Vallarta safe for local and visiting cyclists.

The campaign prioritizes awareness in all the sectors, especially with automobile drivers and those who drive public transportation vehicles so they understand the importance of maintaining a minimum distance of 1 meter and 50 centimeters from a cyclist when passing them on the roadways.

The campaign also includes other activities such as workshops in elementary schools, high schools and universities, communicating with truckers and creating proposals to improve the statutes included in the Traffic Laws.

The 1.5m-minimum between a car and a cyclist is already part of the Mobility and Transport Act of the State of Jalisco and the Transit and Transportation Law of the State of Nayarit.
