Answer

A simple way to determine if a vehicle is not allowed on the route is whether it is motorized. CicLAvia isn’t designed for passive riders; it’s a day for healthy activity. Motor-powered vehicles are not permitted:

  • Electric scooters
  • E-bikes with throttles (if you're not pedaling with the power off)
  • Hoverboards
  • Electric skateboards
  • Segways
  • Electric unicycles
  • Mopeds
  • Motorbikes
  • Motorcycles
  • Cars

Some vehicles, like hoverboards and motorized scooters, aren’t necessarily fast, but they’re still disruptive to the active and people-powered spirit of CicLAvia. It’s great to find an efficient and enjoyable way to get around Los Angeles; they just aren’t allowed on the CicLAvia route.

The following non-motorized vehicles are welcomed:

  • Bicycles
  • Rollerskates
  • Rollerblades
  • Scooters
  • Skateboards
  • Unicycles
  • Tricycles
  • Pedestrians
  • Runners
  • Power wheelchairs/mobility scooters (for participants with disabilities)
