Start Your CicLAvia in South Los Angeles!

3:57 PM PDT on April 13, 2012

Although it may not have its own full-fledged CicLAvia extension just yet, you can still start your day off in a celebration of South L.A.

At 9 A.M. this Sunday, the East Side Riders will lead a ride from the WLCAC (at 109th St. and Central Ave.) in Watts to the South Hub of CicLAvia.

Upon their arrival at the South Hub, USC's ParTour team will stage a launch of their Ride South L.A. map, distributing copies of the crowd-sourced map to riders. The map represents a compilation of photos and stories from riders that participated in a ride to the Watts Towers at the end of January. One of the goals driving the mapping project, said Tafarai Bayne, CicLAvia Board Member, "is to reveal some of the South L.A. features that local residents enjoy all the time, but are hidden to potential visitors.”

If you don't want to ride from Watts, but want to celebrate the South Hub, stop by the African American Firefighter Museum Rest Stop (Central Ave and 14th St.). Enjoy a museum tour, catch DJs Filthy Sal and Survive and see live performances by the Inner City Dwellers, Stoll Rockers, and the Rob Hunter Quartet. There will also be a bike show featuring the Real Rydaz Lowrider Bike Club, local food truck vendors (featuring South L.A.'s Earlez Grille Food Truck), a community/political action area, and a bike repair and first aid station.

Hope to see you there!
