On Sunday, 10/10/10 CicLaVia will open LA’s car-clogged streets for walking, bicycling, and community recreation.
Inspired by Ciclovía, the original, weekly street closure event in Bogotá, Colombia, CicLAvia opens LA streets to pedestrians and bicyclists, creating a temporary web of public space on which residents of Los Angeles can walk, bike, socialize, celebrate and learn more about their own city. On 10/10/10, 7.5 miles of roadways will temporarily close to car traffic and open for recreational purposes. From Boyle Heights to Downtown, MacArthur Park to East Hollywood, CicLAvia encourages Angelenos to not only make active use of their streets, but to rediscover the roadways and neighborhoods that too often go unnoticed in a car.
NeighborGoods has partnered with CicLaVia so participants can borrow a bike from a neighbor for the event! Cycling is a great way to explore Los Angeles, meet your neighbors and engage with your community. Check out the bikes available near you and reserve one for CicLaVia!
If you live in LA and have a bike you don’t plan on using on 10/10/10 add it to your inventory for someone to share. See you on 10/10/10!
