Why was CicLAvia created in Los Angeles?


CicLAvia started as a grassroots initiative in 2008 as the outgrowth of discussions held by a number of individuals who recognized that open streets events could address active transportation, urban land use and public health needs in Los Angeles.

Inspired by the ciclovía events that started 40 years ago in Bogotá, Colombia, the first CicLAvia was held on October 10, 2010. Six years and 20 CicLAvias later, more than a million people have explored more than 140 miles of open streets in Los Angeles County.
