The second Los Angeles CicLAvia will take place tomorrow, Sunday, April 10th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The “ciclovia”, meaning bicycle path, in Spanish started in Bogota, Columbia over 30 years ago as a result of all the pollution and congestion, something Los Angeles can relate to.
The cicLAvia will bring people into the streets, almost eight miles of which will be closed to traffic, on bicycles, skateboards, roller blades and on foot to socialize, and have fun. They will also be able to actually see neighborhoods and roads that they normally don’t when going on about their daily lives in cars. And the emphasis is on socializing.
The previous Los Angeles cicLAvia was on October 10, 2010 and was a great success with around 100,000 people in attendance. Tomorrow’s event should prove to be an even bigger one.
Some of the events planned are:
Grand Opening Ceremony at the Japanese-American National Museum at First and Central.
Valet Bike Parking at Japanese Village Plaza, to enable you to park your bike and tour Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo.
Hidden L.A. and FamilyFinds are organizing a scavenger hunt.
There will be a goal-kicking booth organized by Chivas USA. This will take place at MacArthur Park on 7th and Alvarado.
You can pick grapefruit with Food Forward at 11:00 a.m. at New Hampshire and 3rd St.
There are many more events, and then there are the after parties. And if you miss this one the next two Los Angeles cicLAvia scheduled are on July 10, and October 9.
Be prepared for road closures, although there will be some intersections where you can cross.
Have fun, and remember, SOCIALIZE!
