CicLAvia


CicLAvia, incubated at LACBC, is a car-free festival where bicyclists and pedestrians take over select L.A. streets. The 7-mile CicLAvia route goes from Hollenbeck Park in Boyle Heights, through Downtown L.A. to the Bicycle Kitchen in East Hollywood. It’s a free, family fun event with lots of activities for all – and just a great day to ride a bike.

Volunteers needed. A few hundred good volunteers are needed – mostly on 10-10-10,  but also in advance. If you are interested, please go to: ciclavia.wordpress.com/how-to-help/volunteer-dates-and-times

CicLAvia Heading Deeper Through the Eastside, but When?

|
For CicLAvia, figuring out how, when and where to expand has been its biggest challenge.  While CicLAvia is free to attend, it costs a lot of money to push past the current 10-mile route, closing streets to cars, providing police support and re-routing car drivers who find entrences and exits from the freeway blocked.  Despite […]
