CicLAvia-South LA presented by Metro is Set for December 5th


CicLAvia – South LA

Another Exciting Day of Car-Free Streets
Connecting the Neighborhoods of South Central, Exposition Park, Leimert Park and Crenshaw

December 5, 2021; 9am-3pm

On Sunday, December 5, CicLAvia will open up 5.5-miles of streets in South LA connecting the neighborhoods of South Central, Exposition Park, Leimert Park and Crenshaw. For all ages and abilities, the public is invited to bike, skate, scooter, run, walk, skateboard, hitch a ride on a pedi-cab, spectate and enjoy the route. CicLAvia is a free, open event – show up anywhere along the route at any time, and have fun!

CicLAvia is where joy meets purpose, restoring comfort to the community and reminds us of the value of public spaces for all. CicLAvia reinforces what matters most to us – connection with each other and with our communities. Whether one bikes, walks, strolls, skates, or jogs, we create more incredible moments and experiences enjoying our city streets together. Inspired by Bogotá’s weekly ciclovía, CicLAvia temporarily closes streets to car traffic and opens them to Angelenos to use as a public park.

Only people-powered vehicles are allowed. No electric scooters, skateboards, hoverboards, unicycles, motorcycles and other non-people-powered vehicles are allowed at CicLAvia. Class 1 e-bike pedal-assist allowed. Class 2 e-bikes are allowed when the throttle is powered off. Class 3 e-bikes are allowed when pedal-assist is powered off. Motorized wheelchairs are allowed.
