L.A. Streetsblog is pretty excited about Los Angeles’ fourth CicLAvia coming up in just under three weeks. On Sunday April 15th 2012, about 100,000 Angelenos will experience what L.A. streets can be when we just remove a few pesky automobiles. In case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last couple years, watch these earlier Streetfilms to get a sense for CicLAvia. Then cancel any plans you may have made for April 15th, lace up your walking shoes or tune up your ten-speed and go directly to CicLAvia.

In anticipation of the big day, Streetsblog will run down some of the latest CicLAvia activity:

You never know what great things will happen to you at CicLAvia.

How About a Half Dozen CicLAvias in 2011?

|
The CicLAvia team met last night to review the lessons learned from last Sunday’s amazing open street festival in Los Angeles.
