Corridors Connect is a new series of six events spread over three Sundays in October 2023. The event series features shorter routes – and more of them – for even more opportunities to discover and connect. All events will run from 1pm – 5pm.

Corridors Connect is for everyone! Car-free streets, if only for the afternoon, give us all an opportunity to enjoy the connectivity that roads provide, but in a more healthful, carefree, and social atmosphere.
