Main Street Corridor Development Corporation and BikeWalkKC Partner to Host Main Street Day and Kansas City’s First Ciclovia
Date:6/19/2013

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) June 19, 2013

Kansas City will host its first Ciclovia event on Sept. 7, 2013 as part of Main Street Day. A section of Main Street in the midtown area will be restricted to bicycle and pedestrian traffic during the afternoon of the event.

“Ciclovia is the perfect event for the Main Street, where so much change is taking place,” said Dianne Burnette, executive director of the Main Street Corridor Development Corporation (MainCor), an organization overseeing the redevelopment of the corridor. MainCor recently led a $10 million streetscape improvement project for most of the corridor.

Ciclovia will be a part of MainCor’s Main Street Day festivities, which begin at 11 a.m. with the Main Street Mile run. Main Street, between 34th to 40th Street, will be restricted to bicyclists and pedestrians at noon. Local food vendors, live music, and activities will line the route.

“With no cars, the street will basically become a large open plaza,” said Eric Rogers, Executive Director of BikeWalkKC, a local bicycle and pedestrian advocacy group partnering with MainCor for the event. “People will be able to have fun, exercise, and interact literally in Main Street -- a space normally off-limits to those activities.”

Kansas City’s Ciclovia is based on one that started in Bogota, Colombia in 1972 when that city began blocking major streets to cars on Sundays. (Ciclovia means “bike path” in Spanish.) City leaders the
