This Sunday all new CicLAvia – Pasadena!
Two Feeder Ride options from Santa Monica, Tongva Park
This second CicLAvia of 2015 represents the first visit of LA’s renowned open streets event to the City of Pasadena. For this CicLAvia participants can travel along Colorado Boulevard, and down side streets to parks and historic architecture using foot, pedal and non-motorized wheel power.. CicLAvia – Pasadena May 30, from 9am–4pm
Whether you ride with us or get there on your own – don’t miss it! CicLAvia celebrates the streets of Los Angeles for everyone! Temporarily limiting the access of motor vehicles and opening the streets to all users – walking, wheelchairs, skates, bikes, scooters, skate boards, strollers – you name it! Helpful suggestion on participation at CicLAvia
We will host two feeder ride options to CicLAvia this Sunday, May 30th.
PLEASE NOTE: NEW MEETNG LOCATION AND TIME FOR SANTA MONCIA FEEDER RIDES. Both Ride options meet in Tongva Park, 7:30am
Option 1 – Multimodal
Bike it to Culver City and Expo Line / Gold Line as a group
This simple Route is 7.5 miles and nearly completely flat with bike lanes or low traffic volume streets at our time of travel. We will be traveling at an easy pace but do ask you “stay with the pace” so we can all get there together. No rider is left behind.
For feeder ride all young children should be on tag-a-long, child carrier or in trailers.
Group will decide to ride or train to Gold Line Station from 7th Street Station
Option 2 – Advanced
Bike from Santa Monica to CicLAvia – The Valley
(bail out option at DTLA Gold Line)
This ride is 27.9 miles and for more advance riders – faster paced with more elevation gain (click map). This group plans to meet the UCLA Bike Shop Group at Westwood and Santa Monica Blvd at 8:45am.
The group will still stay together with no rider left behind – you do have the option if you choose to jump on the Gold Line if you run out of steam or prefer to ride the train from DTLA.
Stuff to bring:
- helmet (for feeder ride or children under 18)
- sun screen
- cash –
- spare tube/ patch kit
- any special tools your bike requires!
