• CicLAvia – the nation’s largest car-free/open streets event will produce two new routes and one classic route in 2013 · Sunday April 21
CicLAvia – To the Sea! Sun, surf, and 15 miles of open road will mark the first CicLAvia of 2013, transforming Venice Boulevard and downtown Los Angeles streets into a car-free, linear park for strolling, biking, playing, and exploring the city from a new perspective. Since it began in 2010, CicLAvia has quickly become Los Angeles County’s most popular public event, consistently attracting more than 100,000 participants. CicLAvia is free of charge and open to everyone, from lifelong Angelenos to first-time visitors from around the globe. Leave the motorized transportation methods behind and claim the streets as your own.
CicLAvia is recognized as one of the city’s most innovative initiatives – a large-scale, public celebration that has come to symbolize Los Angeles’ civic, cultural, and environmental resurgence. CicLAvia challenges the stereotype of Los Angeles as a car-addicted, smog-choked megalopolis, and gives people a chance to enjoy the benefits of the city’s improved walkability, bikeability, public transit, and vibrant street life.
Since it began in 2010, CicLAvia has quickly become Los Angeles’ most popular public event, consistently attracting more than 100,000 participants. CicLAvia is free of charge and open to all. No reservations are required. For more information, or to download maps, please visit www.ciclavia.
