First, a definition of the term "Cyclovia", as taken from the organization's website:

Cyc˙lo˙via (siI kle‘ via) n. A Spanish word signifying the temporary closure of a network of streets to cars so that they become “open” to people. During Cyclovia anyone can bike, walk, skate and participate in fun, free activities.

Since 2010, Cyclovia Tucson has organized annual events that encourage active participation by walking, biking, and enjoying what the group's participants call a "car-free and care-free" life in Central Tucson.

Cyclovia Tucson members Kylie Walzak and Janet K. Miller say the group's plans for 2013 include new interactive street life performances and installations that help to expand the Cyclovioa philosophy.
