CicLAvia: Closing Down 7.5 Miles Of Streets For Bicyclists A Good Thing For Los Angeles?
We had CicLAvia, Sunday's street-closing bike event, pegged as a possible, traffic-choking nightmare. But reviews of Los Angeles' first city sponsored mega-ride along 7.5 miles of wide open streets, mostly through East Hollywood, Westlake, downtown and a little of the Eastside, paint it as a success.
lasubwayblog via Flickr Cyclists took advantage of the wide-open streets at L.A.'s first CicLAvia ride.
The Los Angeles Times even stated that 100,000 people participated, although photos don't make it out to be half that crowded.
Still, hats off go to ...
Organizers now want to do five similar events next year and eventually make CicLAvia a weekly ride. Are you up for it?
