FROM CARMAGEDDON TO SHANGRA-L.A. - CICLAVIA IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!
Posted September 12, 2012
Prev: CicLAvia 2013
Next: L.A. Weekly's CicLAvia...

The next CicLAvia is less than a month away, so it’s time to tune up your bike, dust off your tennis shoes, and get ready to explore our city without car traffic! LA's biggest block party returns on Sunday, October 7 – one week after Carmageddon II and one week before the dramatic arrival of the space shuttle Endeavour. It’s a car-free trifecta for Los Angeles! 

We’re particularly excited about this CicLAvia because we’ve developed a new route featuring some of our city's most amazing destinations. For the first time, we’re going to Exposition Park, Chinatown, Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights, and the newly completed Grand Park downtown, where CicLAvia will converge with the inaugural celebration of the park’s performance lawn.

But we haven’t forgotten our roots! The upcoming CicLAvia also includes many longtime favorites, such as MacArthur Park, the ride to and through downtown along 7th and Spring Streets, Little Tokyo, and, of course, the 4th Street Bridge – with its million-dollar view of the downtown skyline. As always, CicLAvia will also offer a wide variety of activities for people of all interests and ages, including music, performances, food trucks galore, and just about everything else L.A. has to offer!

With the recent opening of the Metro Expo line, Westside residents will be able to connect with CicLAvia’s Exposition Park hub by rail. For an entirely car-free adventure, you can take the Ballona Creek Bike Path to the La Cienega/Jefferson Expo station. So take note, Westsiders – there’s no excuse to miss CicLAvia this time!

We hope all of you can join us October 7 to explore our city’s cultural and culinary riches from a new perspective and a slower, more leisurely pace. So get your bike, trike, skates, strollers, and sneakers ready for LA’s biggest block party!

See you on October 7, Los Angeles!
