CicLAvia 21 – Glendale Meets Atwater Village – Open Thread
Yesterday, the 21st iteration of CicLAvia – Southern California’s premiere open streets festival – touched down in the city of Glendale and the L.A. City community of Atwater Village for the first time. The route featured portions of Brand Boulevard, Central Avenue, San Fernando Road, and Glendale Boulevard. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets walking, running, skating, and bicycling.
Such a fun day yesterday at @ciclavia! So amazing having it in our own neighborhood! We've missed the last few so Violet doesn't even remember going before, which is sad. She freaked out at first bicycling in the street, (we got there super early so not many bicycles were out yet), but once she got used to the idea, she had a blast. Wish our neighborhood was like this all the time. We bicycled to the local mall way faster than what it takes to drive there. In the afternoon, bicycled to Violet's string ensemble, then bicycled some more! Made a complete day of it. Can't wait for the next one! @ciclavia #ciclavia #atwatervillage #glendale #mtbgirl #bicycling #morebikes #lesscars #familyday #rideyourbike #discoverla #getoutside #cycling #calilife
At just over three miles, it was one of the shorter distance events, but there was plenty of room to ride and explore.
