CicLAvia Culver City Venice Open Thread

1:39 PM PDT on August 10, 2015

CicLAvia - Culver City meets Venice was another massive CicLAvia. Despite the usual fears from some businesses, the event was attended by huge numbers of cyclists, plus plenty of people on foot, skates, blades, skateboards, and more.

What was your favorite part of Southern California's 14th CicLAvia? Shark and banana bikes? Little girls riding pink training-wheeled bikes? Impromptu front yard parties? Auto dealerships handing out fruit and water? Bike-share demos from coming-soon Metro and Santa Monica systems? Metro Board of Directors Chair and L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and fellow boardmember L.A. City Councilmember Mike Bonin taking bike-share demo bikes for a spin? Added: Supervisor Hilda Solis too! L.A. Great Streets pop-up parklet announcing protected bike lanes coming to Venice Boulevard?!? Hard-shell tacos? Live music? Farmers Market? LADWP tap water refill stations? Spotting something you never noticed before? Beautiful Angelenos of every shape, size, and age smiling in the streets together?
