Despite strong winds and a nippy southerly, a big crowd turned out again on both the 8th and 15th of February for the 1st two Ciclovia for 2015. The count was 2000+ keen people each of the two Sundays! It was fantastic to see so many parents with kids; all with big smiles. Hopefully we'll have more sun and less wind for the last Ciclovia of 2015 on Sunday 8th March.
The feedback from people is great, and the following comment illustrates it nicely!
For those who took part in Ciclovia, it would be fantastic if you can fill in a short survey so that we can continue to improve the event.
On Sunday 8 March 2015, Massey Road on the Miramar Peninsula between Shelly Bay and Scorching Bay will be OPEN to cyclists, walkers, roller bladers, scooters, skateboarders and people using wheel chairs and mobility scooters. The road will be CLOSED to motor vehicles.
Motor vehicles will be present on Shelly Bay road between the Miramar Cutting and Shelly Bay, and on Karaka Bay Road from Worser Bay to Scorching Bay. Normal road rules will apply here, though we’ll be asking motorists to slow and take extra care as families will be accessing the Ciclovia on these roads. A free Shuttle van between Miramar shops and Shelly Bay will be available between 1.30 – 5.30 pm. See the Getting There page for further information.
The 2015 Miramar Peninsula Ciclovia is a trial for making the Miramar Peninsula motor free every Sunday. So get on your walking shoes, bike or scooter, and join Miramar Peninsula Ciclovia 2015!
