CicLAvia in Downtown Culver City

To kick off our 2019 season, we're returning to one of Los Angeles’ favorite car-free event locations, CicLAvia–Culver City Meets Mar Vista + Palm. By way of vibrant corridors normally packed with cars, this popular route connects downtown Culver City to Mar Vista. For this, our 29th CicLAvia, we’ve added stretches of the route into Palms and Culver City’s Arts District.


What We Love About LA

In the spirit of Valentine's Day, all of us at CicLAvia have been reflecting on what we love about the LA region. We all recently penned love notes to this city that holds a special place in each of our hearts. And we wanted to share them with you, the community of people who care as much about LA as we do.
