- Sunday 4/16 – CicLAvia returns! Presented by Metro, and in partnership with Accelerate Resilience L.A., the popular open streets festival features an
all new‘Mid City Meets Pico Union’ route primarily on Venice and Washington Boulevards. The free, family-friendly event closes streets to cars, opening them to people on bike, foot, skate, etc. Sunday’s CicLAvia event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The route is fairly central, and while there isn’t a Metro rail stop immediately on it, it is an easy bike distance (under two miles) from Metro A, B, D, E, and K Line stations (see map above for some stations, plus MacArthur Park and downtown L.A. Pico and 7th Street stations are also very close.) People on foot can easily access the route via several north-south bus lines, including on Vermont [local/Rapid], Western and La Brea. Details at CicLAvia event page.
