Southbound Roland Avenue will be closed to traffic between Northern Parkway and West University Parkway on Sunday, May 15, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the neighborhood's third "ciclovia."
The public is invited to walk, ride bicycles and skateboard on Roland Avenue, as was done last year and in 2009.
This year's ciclovia is expanded, co-organizer Mike McQuestion said.
The goal of a ciclovia -- a Spanish term for "bike path," and an event that has been tried in several American cities -- is to turn Roland Avenue into "a giant temporary playground so people can exercise and socialize," according to the league's website, <a href="http://www.rolandpark.org">www.rolandpark.org</a>.
The ciclovia is being sponsored by the Roland Park Civic League, and is part of a series of events this weekend and next week, all designed to promote sustainability and alternative modes of transportation.
A sustainability expo is planned outside the Roland Park Library on Saturday, May 14, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
In addition, families are asked to walk, bike or ride buses to work and school the week of May 16-20.
