Another festive ciclovia event is being held in San Francisco this weekend; Sunday Streets is coming to the Western Addition. Neighborhood roadways that are usually clogged with automobiles will be opened for public recreation this Sunday—providing car-free recreational space for everyone (see a map and more at Sunday Streets website).

Come play in the streets. Ride your bike, skate, walk the dog, dance or just go for a leisurely stroll. Thousands of volunteers help make these fun events happen. To get involved, sign up to volunteer for Sunday Streets.
