CicLAvia 20: Culver City Meets Venice, Open Thread

The first CicLAvia of the year took place yesterday along about six miles of Washington Boulevard and Venice Boulevard extending from Culver City to Venice. The weather was cool and sunny, the crowds were huge, and there were, of course, all kinds of Angelenos running, walking, skating, and bicycling.

Yesterday'sĀ CicLAvia returned to the same popular route that the festival opened in August 2015. This time around it felt like more businessesĀ knew the drill. From Tito's Tacos to informal streetside fresh lemonade stands, businesses opened their doors to invite in the great foot traffic.

Huge crowds (a nice problem to have) meant plenty of bike-on-bike congestion near hubs, especially approaching Venice Beach. Expo Line trains serving the event were packed with bicycles, too.
