CicLAvia Line Up Includes a Celebratory Launch Party + 8 Events and the Addition of New CicLAminis

Season Kicks Off with CicLAvia – The Valley  on February 26, 2023

Bringing Los Angeles together with more open streets, more miles of smiles, and more active recreation spaces, CicLAvia announces its 2023 schedule of car-free open streets events, including the addition of the CicLAmini. In addition to the 5-7 miles of CicLAvia’s traditional open streets events, CicLAminis – compact neighborhood routes in new locations around Los Angeles – are designed to inspire participants to slow down and enjoy the streets in a more leisurely fashion. A CicLAmini is a more pedestrian-oriented experience featuring activities sprinkled along the entire 1–2-mile open street event. Expect things like self-guided walking tours, scavenger hunts, street games, local business engagements, and art and cultural activities for all-ages.

“One of my favorite things to do in Los Angeles is riding my bike,” says Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass, who has attended several events in past years.CicLAvia events bring that joy safely to all parts of our city by showing us how safe, manageable, and bright our streets can be without cars – not just for bicyclists, but for walkers, runners, skaters, and scooters, CicLAvias are a wonderful way to celebrate our great city of Los Angeles while engaging in an activity that’s healthy for people and the planet. Congratulations to CicLAvia, LADOT and LA Metro for adding more open streets events in 2023, in more LA neighborhoods. I can’t wait to join you!”

CicLAvia-The Valley

CicLAvia-The Valley, taking place on Sunday, February 26, is an opportunity to explore the neighborhoods of Canoga Park, Winnetka, and Reseda along Sherman Way. Show up anywhere along the route at any time and have fun! Hubs have restrooms, free water refilling stations, free basic bike repair, bike parking, and first aid. In addition, free pedicab rides are available at each information booth. CicLAvia-The Valley will have three hubs along Sherman Way in Canoga Park, Winnetka and Reseda.

“We hope people will join all eight events this year and enjoy the car-free streets in a multitude of people-powered ways,” says CicLAvia Executive Director Romel Pascual. “A bike or wheels are never necessary to participate. But if you are on a bike, skateboard, rollerblades, or roller skates, always wear a helmet. It’s California law for anyone aged 18 and under.”
