This Sunday all new CicLAvia – The Valley!
Two Feeder Ride options from Santa Monica, Tongva Park
This first CicLAvia of 2015 represents the inaugural visit of LA’s renowned open streets event to the San Fernando Valley. For this CicLAvia participants will be able to travel between North Hollywood and Studio City on car-free streets, using foot, pedal and non-motorized wheel power. CicLAvia – The Valley March 22, 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, March 22nd.
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 to RED LINE together
THIS ROUTE WAS UPDATED 3/21 DUE TO EXPO CONSTRUCTION
This UPDATED Route is 8.2 miles and mostly 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 or in trailers. Want to ride yourself to Expo here’s a simple route on Venice Blvd
Option 2 – Advanced
Bike from Santa Monica to CicLAvia – The Valley
(bail out option at Metro Station Hollywood and Highland)
This Route is for more advance riders – slightly faster paced with more elevation gain (click map).
The group will still stay together with no rider left behind – you do have the option if you choose to jump on the Metro Red Line if you run out of steam or prefer not to ride over the hill on Cahuenga Blvd.
Want to ride to Red Line on your own? Here is that route
Stuff to bring:
- helmut (for feeder ride or children under 18)
- sun screen
- cash –
- spare tube/ patch kit
- any special tools your bike requires!
