The City of Encinitas will open up its streets for the return of Cyclovia on Sunday, Jan. 9.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. South Coast Highway 101 will be closed to cars completely from D Street to J Street, allowing people to get out and explore downtown Encinitas at a different pace by bike, on foot or other means of self-powered transportation.

Cyclovia’s activities will include a bicycle safety rodeo, a bike and helmet decorating station, and a bike skills course and portable pump track for kids hosted by the San Diego Mountain Bike Association. The San Diego County Bike Coalition will provide bike racks and bike valets for people traveling by bikes downtown and informational booths will share about the city’s many bike and mobility-related programs and projects.
