CicLAvia – Heart of Los Angeles Route (DTLA, Chinatown, Echo Park & East LA)!
Date: Sunday, October 8, 2017
Time: 9:00am until 4:00pm
CicLAvia is the biggest open streets event in the USA! And one of the great benefits of CicLAvia is that it introduces us to areas of Los Angeles County that we might not otherwise visit. CicLAvia has been opening streets across Los Angeles county since 2010. Participants have traversed 140 miles across the the San Fernando Valley, Culver City, Venice, Mar Vista, Wilshire Blvd., Koreatown, MacArthur Park, South LA, Echo Park, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Boyle Heights, Historic Downtown, East LA, Pasadena, Pacoima, Arleta, Panorama City, Southeast Cities, Glendale and Atwater Village. October is a great time to ride your bike, and a great opportunity to see DTLA and adjacent neighborhoods. For more information on the route, go to http://www.ciclavia.org/ciclavia_hola17
Plans for a feeder ride are in the works. More information to follow!
