    The Ciclavia article points out that businesses that stayed open during the Wilshire Ciclavia made, on average, 10% more than they would have otherwise.

    That’s great! But I’d really like to see the statistics for businesses that actively catered to Ciclavia participants, with booths on the sidewalk, street food, special deals, signs, etc. I’d bet that most of them absolutely cleaned up!

    As for the businesses that closed, or the ones that stayed huddled behind closed doors: Come on out and join the party! Sell some street food! Put up signs, put up a table or a booth, offer coupons, stand on the sidewalk and smile and make people notice you! 150,000 potential customers are walking right by your door; don’t miss the opportunity to get their business!
