CicLAvia is planning to expand! We're going from 7.5 miles to 10.5 miles!
CicLAvia makes select L.A. streets will safe for people to walk, skate, play and ride a bike. With two hugely successful CicLAvia events under our belt, we are currently preparing for Los Angeles’ next couple ”open-street” event: Sunday October 9th. Seven and a half miles of streets were car-free from 10am-3pm on October 10th 2010 and April 10th 2011. At each CicLAvia an estimated 100,000 folks walked, biked, skated and mostly smiled! CicLAvia is a joint event hosted by the non-profit CicLAvia and the city of Los Angeles. For more info, see ciclavia.org
On October 9th 2011, we’re doing the initial 7.5-mile route again, and reaching out to new neighborhoods and adding new spurs. October 9th will include a 1.5-mile south spur from downtown through the Fashion District, nearly to South L.A. and a 1.5-mile north spur connecting to Chinatown and El Pueblo.
Your contribution goes to hosting CicLAvia - this includes everything from outreach, to printing, to signage, to portapotties, to valet bike parking, to more!
