Earlier today, CicLAvia released the map for the April 21 CicLAvia. “Los Angeles’ biggest block party” had previously announced that it would hold three CicLAvias this year, featuring two completely new routes. April 21 will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

While we already knew that the April route would be mainly on Venice Boulevard heading from Figueroa to the beach, but the just-released map shows that CicLAvia will also spread through Downtown L.A. The easternmost part of CicLAvia is City Hall. From there the route heads south on Main Street until 7th Street.  At 7th it cuts east until Figueroa Street where it heads south until Venice. From there, it’s a straight shot to the beach.

“The new route will demonstrate that it is possible to cross the east/west divide, whether on foot, on bike, or on public transit – and not only is it possible, it can be fun,” explains CicLAvia Executive Director Aaron Paley. “We want to show that CicLAvia can be anywhere in LA.”

“CicLAvia is all about exploring and rediscovering our city, so the new route for April 21 is just the beginning.”

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 […]
