We are pleased to announce that Mundo Ceiba A.C. activities will officially begin in Puerto Vallarta with the 1st Biking for Vallarta Sunday Ride on February 14th. We invite you to join us and be a part of this movement that seeks to promote cycling as a form of mobility in our city.
Mundo Ceiba is a non-profit Asociación Civil Ecológica that promotes biking as a healthy alternative for transportation. In Oaxaca, many steps have already been made and now the movement is expanding to the Banderas Bay area.
On February 14th from from 9-11 am, a 2 km circuit on Fluvial Vallarta will be open exclusively for bikes, so bring your whole family and enjoy a day of love for cycling with us! Rental bikes will be available for those who do not own one, and there will also be a Yoga Class, eco-themed educational activities for children and their parents, and music. The 2 km bike route begins at Av. Jesus Rodriguez Barba and the corner of Fluvial Vallarta Gardens.
Taking the first step to adapt bicycling as a form of daily transportation is not easy, it takes a great effort to break the barriers of a culture that does not cycle. Many people think that the idea is crazy, or minimize the importance of making this activity a part of daily life.
Biking is without a doubt clean transportation which also helps to alleviate the traffic problems in every city that is not planned for the imminent growth of automobiles and public transportation. We thank all those who from the beginning helped us to create and support this movement.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or if you are interested in participating or supporting the movement in any way, please contact Roberto Lopez Fabiola Zepeda at mundoceiba @ gmail.com.
