Puerto Vallarta Celebrates International Car-Free Day

September 18, 2017

Aside from celebrating World Car-Free Day on Friday, September 22, Vallarta will also organize a large-scale bicycle ride pn Saturday, in which City Mayor Arturo Davalos Peña is expected to participate.

Puerto Vallarta will join the thousands of cities around the globe in celebration of International Car-Free Day on September 22. The celebration encourages people to spend one carefully prepared day without cars, and to reflect publicly and collectively on the lessons of this experience.

The first car-free celebrations began with the 1973 oil crisis, although it was not until 1994 that such initiatives were formalized in cities in Iceland, France and the UK. In Mexico, official World Car-Free Days began in 2014, despite the fact that certain cities, such as Puerto Vallarta, had already implemented bicycle-specific initiatives commemorating the global date.

Aside from celebrating World Car-Free Day on Friday, September 22, Puerto Vallarta will also organize a large-scale bicycle ride the following day, in which City Mayor Arturo Davalos Peña is expected to participate. People that wish to join the bicycle ride can do so at its starting point, Plaza Parabien in Nuevo Vallarta (Blvd. Nuevo Vallarta & Carr. 200).

The bicycle ride will commence at 5:00 pm on Saturday. Folks can catch up with the ride at subsequent points of the route, such as in front of the whale sculpture in Marina Vallarta. The ride will continue along Fco. Medina Ascencio all the way to the Malecón, returning to Marina Vallarta.

For more information about this and other related activities, please telephone Juan Manuel Fernández Lomelí at (322) 120-5758.
