Health and community based cycling group Ciclovia are holding a "mini festival" to promote cycling in a traffic-free environment.

The International health and community based cycling group Ciclovia will be holding a "mini festival" in Belfast to promote cycling in a traffic-free environment.

The Botanic Avenue, Shaftesbury Square, Dublin Rd and Bedford St route to the City Hall will be closed to motorists on Sunday 4 October 2015 from 9am to 12:45pm.

Cyclists and members of the public are encouraged to participate by cycling into the town and Botanic Park areas of the city where the traffic-free zone will be set up.


The mini festival will include a number of cultural and sports events that promote health and community.

Beflast has recently seen the addition of a public bike share scheme, similar to schemes in London and throughout the UK.

Bicycles are placed throughout the city in docking stations and can be accessed and returned to these docks by any member of the public at a charge of £5 for three days of use, or £20 for an annual subscription.
