Síclovía invites San Antonians to show off sneaker styles at SicloviaKicks.com

SAN ANTONIO – Síclovía is calling all sneaker heads, artists, schools, fitness lovers and the general public to decorate a pair of shoes – new or used – to showcase at the website www.SicloviaKicks.com and then sport at the Sept. 28 event.

“This is a fun way to show your spirit and express yourself however you like,” said Monica Garza, Director of Community Wellness for the YMCA of Greater San Antonio. “We wanted to create an exciting campaign that bridges art and fitness to inspire people to get excited about Síclovía as a way to get healthy and fit.”

Part of the campaign includes a contest where the public can vote on the website for their favorite shoes. The top 5 pairs will be displayed at Síclovía on Sept. 28. It’s free to participate. All you have to do is find a pair of sneakers and decorate them with markers, paint and other craft supplies.

“This is a great opportunity for schools, companies and individuals to showcase their work,” added Garza. “So have fun and show us your shoes, San Antonio!”

Since the website launched on Sept. 7, local artists have already begun to post custom shoes with unique designs, many of which celebrate San Antonio.

On Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Síclovía will hit the street on Broadway from Lions Field to Alamo Plaza and will extend east to Dignowity Hill neighborhood, for a total of 3.25 miles. This traditional route has been officially renamed “Midtown East” as it now extends into the near East Side.

The YMCA of Greater San Antonio, along with the city of San Antonioand key sponsor H-E-B and Humana will open the streets to an expected 70,000+ participants. Held in the fall and spring each year, Síclovía has grown from 15,000 in attendance at the inaugural event in October 2011 to more than 73,000 participants in September 2013.

About Síclovía:

Síclovía is a free event that turns major city streets in to a safe place for people to exercise and play. The streets become temporarily car-free for about 5 hours on Sundays for families to run, ride bikes, take exercise classes and enjoy their city streets.

The modern day Ciclovía originated in Bogotá, Colombia 30 years ago. Bogotá began their program with 8 miles of open streets. Ciclovía was so popular, today, they open over 70 miles of car-free streets to their citizens and connect city parks to provide green spaces for Reclovías.
