CicLAvia Looking for Volunteers…Starting Tomorrow

Generally, when we add an advertiser to the side bar, we like to take a second to introduce them to the community.  I don’t think we need to introduce CicLAvia, so we waited until there was some value to the CicLAvia team to give them their welcome announcement.

The CicLAvia team has begun to reach out and ask for volunteers to help make CicLAvia a repeat success in 2011.  But you don’t have to wait until April 1oth to help out, they actually need a hand this week…starting tomorrow.  Be sure to bookmark this page, and check it regularly if you’re interested in helping.  Here are the dates they have listed now for volunteer opportunities:

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 […]

CicLAvia Successfully Rides Again

They don’t look like they’re on their way to church, I thought as I eyed up the handful of serious-looking young men lined up outside a corner liquor store. I was headed to Watts to meet up with the feeder ride led by the East Side Riders. But I was running a little behind because […]
