CicLAvia: Heart of LA, October 18th

CicLAvia catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation and good health through car-free streets.

CicLAvia – Heart of LA, fifth-year anniversary route 10/18/2015!

Ride with us or get there on your own – don’t miss it!

CicLAvia - Heart of LA will celebrate what has become a Los Angeles institution on October 18 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with a fifth-year anniversary route. CicLAvia began as an idea with an uncertain outcome when it first removed cars from the streets of downtown Los Angeles on October 10, 2010. Now, five years, fourteen events and hundreds of thousands of participants later, CicLAvia is the largest open streets event in North America.

Heart of LA will have six miles for participants to explore by bike, foot, skateboard, wheelchair and other non-motorized traffic. The route will take people through Boyle Heights, the Arts District, Little Tokyo, Civic Center, Chinatown, Historic Core and as far west as Macarthur Park.

Whether you ride with us or get there on your own – don’t miss it! CicLAvia celebrates the streets of Los Angeles for everyone!  Helpful suggestion on participation at CicLAvia
