The activities of the World Bike Forum will include a series of cycle routes through Mexico City to celebrate 200 years since the bicycle’s creation.

Starting Wednesday, Mexico City residents will be able to ride through the streets of the city, which from April 19 to 23 will host the world forum with exhibitions and workshops.

Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., the Road Cycle Tour will hold the “22 Days Without Gasoline Challenge,” a bike ride which will begin at the Zócalo and end at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) campus, where the forum’s cultural activities will begin.

From 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., the UNAM Cultural Band Ride will be held, and at 4:30 p.m., a bike route will set off from the Plaza de Santo Domingo, in the city’s Historic Center.

After the inaugural ceremony at the Plaza de Santo Domingo, there will be another cycle procession that will pass by the Angel of Independence, Chapultepec Lake, Condesa, Roma, Doctores, the Historic Center and into the Zócalo. Entrance is free.

On Thursday night, the public can enjoy two events at the Monument to the Revolution, in the Cuauhtémoc borough. The first is “Ride Your City” (Rueda tu Ciudad), which will feature films projected by bike-power, from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. At 8:30 p.m., the “Ride for All” (Paseo de Todos) will take place.

On Saturday, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., the Hearing Awareness ride (Rodada Sensibilización de la Escucha) will be held, starting and ending at the Plaza de Santo Domingo; and for those who like the theater and exercise, the Bike Theater (Teatro en Bici) or Ride and Walk to the Zócalo (Rodada Caminata al Zócalo) events are good options, scheduled for 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.

On Sunday, the festival’s closing events will include a group photo and a picnic.
