CicLAvia catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation and good health through car-free streets.
CicLAvia -Â Heart of LAÂ 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 LAÂ 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.
WeÂ againÂ host a feeder toÂ CicLAviaÂ this Sunday,Â October 18th.
Meet inÂ Tongva Park, 8am.
We’ll ride toÂ Culver City to join LACBC Local Chapter, CCBCÂ then on to CicLavia!
