Enjoy Riding Open Streets at CicLAvia – Meet the Hollywoods on August 21


CicLAvia - Meet the Hollywoods

6.6-Miles of Open Streets Connecting East & West Hollywood
Enjoy a Staycation Exploring these Iconic LA Communities

On Sunday, August 21, 9:00 a.m.-4 p.m., in partnership with the cities of Los Angeles and West Hollywood, CicLAvia will open 6.6 miles of streets connecting East and West Hollywood communities, temporarily turning car-filled streets into public park space for the day. CicLAvia is free. Participants of all ages and abilities will enjoy a day to sightsee, play and explore local gems between East and West Hollywood, while experiencing the joy of safe, people-powered transportation on car-free open streets. The Meet the Hollywoods route includes Santa Monica Blvd, Highland Ave, Hollywood Blvd, between San Vicente Blvd to the west and N Virgil Ave to the East. Show up anywhere along the route at any time and have fun!

Instead of building permanent infrastructure, CicLAvia builds unifying social fabric, joyously connecting culturally diverse neighborhoods and neighbors to each other through open streets. Whether one bikes, walks, strolls, skates, or jogs, CicLAvia creates more incredible moments and experiences enjoying our city streets together.

More than just an open streets movement, CicLAvia helps communities re-imagine a greener and cleaner Los Angeles, while also promoting equitable transportation options, healthier lifestyles, and closer connections to community.   

Inspired by Bogotá’s weekly ciclovía, CicLAvia has been temporarily closing streets to car traffic and opening them as public parks in Los Angeles since 2010. With more than 245 miles of open streets, Meet the Hollywoods is CicLAvia’s 40th event.
