Every few months L.A. comes alive for CicLAvia events. Originating from Bogota Columbia as a response to the congestion and pollution of city streets, CicLAvia now happens throughout Latin American and the United States.
In LA we need this event more than ever. With our big population of commuters in a sprawling city, this event creates a temporary park by removing cars from the city streets, and filling them with bikes, roller blades, scooters, pedestrians and special events to explore the city in a new way.
It’s fun to see people ride, walk or roll through the car free streets of L.A. This particular event in April was extra special as they shut down 6 miles of Wilshire Blvd, with hubs to stop at along the way. We pedestrians visited the downtown hub to explore all of their activities, shops, performers and food trucks. Learn more about CicLAvia at their website and get ready for the next event Sunday October 5, 2014.
