CicLAvia – Iconic Wilshire Boulevard transforms one of the legendary thoroughfares of Los Angeles on April 6. CicLAvia is open to the public and free of charge. Registration is not required and there is no starting or ending point along the route.
From 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., CicLAvia – Iconic Wilshire Boulevard offers six miles of car-free, open streets and participants can join the fun at any point along the route.

Wilshire Boulevard was first carved out as a long path through a barley field in 1895. While its beginnings were humble, this path has transformed into one of the most notable boulevards in all of the United States. From 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on CicLAvia day, participants can stroll through a snapshot of the city’s architectural evolution from Victorian vision to modernist experimentation; massive towers of business to intimate houses of worship; world class museums to working class mercados.

The CicLAvia – Iconic Wilshire Boulevard route will connect One Wilshire in Downtown Los Angeles to Fairfax Avenue along Miracle Mile. These two anchor hubs will feature pedestrian zones with performers, activities sponsored by several fantastic museums, programming by some of our community partners, food trucks and more. Additional hubs along the route include MacArthur Park, Koreatown and Mid-Wilshire.

No matter how you plan your trip, take advantage of CicLAvia’s free downloadable stories on Wilshire Boulevard and “The Modernist’s Guide to Iconic Wilshire Boulevard”, which are sure to enrich your experience as you travel through a snapshot of the city’s architectural evolution.
