Fitness-focused ‘ciclovia’ turns Esplanade Avenue into bike-friendly event
Do You Wear a Fitness Tracker? October 26, 2013 0 Do you know how many steps you’ve taken today or how well you slept last night? If you’ve jumped on board the fitness tracker trend, the answer is probably right on your wrist. There’s something about tracking your fitness stats and knowing just how many calories you’ve burned that is both motivating and interesting. Once you’ve slipped a tracker on your wrist or clipped it to your pocket, it’s easy to become a fan. When I tested out the Jawbone UP earlier this year, I found myself checking the app several times a day to see how I was faring, which encouraged me to walk a little more if I wasn’t on track to beat my step goal.

Charlotte Jones, director of Insanity Workout Reviews programming with Play Build, one of the many organizations that took part in the event, said of the Lewis children, “These kids share a bedroom in a shotgun house so even using this tiny park is a ton of space for them and having the streets opened up is phenomenal. They are so excited when they get more room.” It is the fifth and final Play Streets event with previous ones having taken place at A.L. Davis Park in Central City, the McDonough Playground in Algiers, Conrad Park in Hollygrove and Joe W. Brown Park in eastern New Orleans. This was the first, however, to place such a heavy emphasis on bicycling and was inspired by a trip Jennifer Ruley, with the Louisiana Public Health Institute, took several years ago to Mexico City to attend one of their weekly ciclovias.
