CicLAvia – Heart of LA Car-Free Street Celebration is Set for October 5


On Sunday, October 5, Los Angeles will celebrate its tenth CicLAvia, transforming 10.1 miles of normally congested streets into a car-free, linear park for strolling, biking, playing, and experiencing the city from a new perspective.

According to CicLAvia.org, ”CicLAvia will return to the Heart of LA on October 5 from 9:00 a.m – 4:00 p.m. with an almost entirely new route. CicLAvia is a free event. No registration is required and there is no starting or ending point. All you need to do is show up somewhere along the route, travel any direction you like by foot, bike, board or other non-motorized transportation, and then have fun!

Heart of LA will cross through downtown LA along parts of the first CicLAvia route, but will extend into new areas like Echo Park, the Historic Broadway Theater District, and through Boyle Heights all the way into the County of Los Angeles and into East Los Angeles. The latter part of the route is made possible through the support of Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina and a grant from Metro.”

CicLAvia is free of charge and open to all. No reservations are required. For more information, or to download maps, visit CicLAvia.org.
