This Sunday, CicLAvia comes to LA, which means unless you’re walking or riding a bike and joining in the festivities, street closures!
Okay, so CicLAvia intentions are noble enough. Ciclovías started in Bogata, Columbia (Columbia is the birthplace of Sofia Vergara, in case you needed a reference point) thirty years ago as a response to all the traffic congestion and pollution, according to the official website, CicLAvia.org.
Recently CicLAvia came to the LA, and after five successful events, have two more planned for our city, this Sunday the 23rd and October 6th.
Essentially, cars are banned from the streets, making them safe for bicyclists and pedestrians alike. People can walk, ride, and shop without the ever-present LA traffic, creating what CicLAvia calls a “temporary park.”
From 9:00am until 4:00pm, Wilshire Blvd will be closed from the 110 Freeway to Fairfax, with four car crossing points at La Brea, Western, Vermont, and Alvarado.
Visit CicLAia.org for more details about the event and street closures.
