Ciclovía Salinas 2023 – Open Streets in Monterey County

¡Donde las Calles son Suyas!

Where the Streets are Yours! 

Still just an annual event!

Enthusiastic youth volunteers who launched Ciclovía Salinas with the inaugural event on Sunday, October 6, 2013 expressed that they’d love to have it every week, or at least every month! However, it remains an annual event since 2013 (apart from no event in 2021), so don’t miss the 2023 date:

Sunday, October 15, 10 a.m. – 2 pm.

To learn more, scroll below the 2023 poster, provided here in JPG and PDF format.

ALT TEXT of the Ciclovía Salinas 2023 poster, from @BikeMonterey’s Mastodon post:

This is a bilingual (Spanish-English) poster for the October 15, 2023 Ciclovia Salinas, 10 am – 2 pm. 

The event logo, featured at the top of the poster, is in brown, green, and black. It has the words “Ciclovia Salinas” and the words “Where the Streets are Yours!  ¡Donde las Calles son Suyas!” along with graphic representations of an adult and child walking together; individuals biking, skating, jumping, running, rolling in a wheelchair; and two children standing together. 

A photo of an elder on a trike, and drawings of a boy on a bicycle and a girl on a scooter are the center focal point of this poster. Two photos from past events are featured at the top, on either side of the logo. 

The poster has many other details, including that this is a free event, it will include raffles, music, and more, and it takes place on 1.6 miles of Alisal Street between Main Street and Sanborn Road. At the near-bottom of the poster are contact info— (phone number) 831-272-2325; (email address); and the social media handle @CicloviaSalinas, alongside logos for four common social media platforms, Facebook, Instagram, X (formerly known as Twitter), and Snapchat.

Logos for main sponsors of the event are at the bottom of the poster, including Building Healthy Communities, Action Council, City of Salinas, Salinas Valley Health, Valley Bikes, and Transportation Agency for Monterey County.
