Spokane Summer Parkways is an idea inspired by an event in Bogota, Colombia called Ciclovia (meaning “bike path” in Spanish) and similar events in other parts of the world. The focus is on recreation, fitness, and community when we close streets to automobiles and open up the streets to bikes, pedestrians, skaters, and other human-powered transportation.

Physical fitness activities like yoga, Zumba, hula hoops, gymnastics, tai chi, fencing, dancing, Pilates, self defense, jump rope, hacky sack, and martial arts will be offered free along the course to encourage a healthy lifestyle for everyone.  Folks of all ages and abilities may enter and exit the course at any point and enjoy these activities.  Participants are also encouraged to bring their own games and hobbies along (e.g. picnics, music, chalk art, hopscotch, bubbles, juggling, jump rope, etc).

Note: Summer Parkways is open to all forms of people-powered, non-motorized transport. This does not include powered scooters or skateboards, or hoverboards.

If you ride a pedal assist bike, you are welcome to ride that at Summer Parkways. Please travel a safe speed and ensure that you follow the rules of the road.

In 2023, Spokane Summer Parkways will be held on
