#DamienTalksSGV 18 – The 626 Is On!

11:50 AM PDT on September 27, 2016

This week, #DamienTalks with Wesley Reutimann about the new plans for the postponed 626. Spoiler, prepare yourself for a massive open streets party across the SGV next March.

I'm so excited, I'm giving up my logo for the week.

It is no surprise to anyone that listens to this podcast, or reads this website, that we were super excited for the 626 Golden Streets. The mammoth open streets party that spanned the entire Gold Line Foothill Extension that opened this spring would have been a unique event, spanning many municipalities and nearly-doubling the route distance of the "Heart of L.A." CicLAvia.

Yeah, the 626 was going to be AMAZING. Then it was postponed because of the forest fires that were going happening the week of June 26.

But the 626 is back on the calendar! March 5, 2017! It's going to be awesome. See you there!

Find out how the 626 is returning and what to expect in this gigantic and unique open streets party.

#DamienTalks is supported by Foothill Transit, offering car-free travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley with connections to the new Gold Line Stations across the Foothills and Commuter Express lines traveling into the heart of downtown L.A.
