CicLAvia: Walk, Run, Bike, Skate Iconic Wilshire Boulevard on Sunday

Ciclavia

CicLAvia will roll down Iconic Wilshire Boulevard again this Sunday…transforming one of the legendary thoroughfares of Los Angeles into a car-free zone for a day. More than 100,000 participants will have fun biking and strolling and using other alternative transportation as they connect with with businesses, outdoor exercise, diverse neighborhoods and each other.

How do you plan to take on this special opportunity?

Participants can enhance their experience by listening to a podcast by architectural researcher and commentator Edward Lifson and by following a pocket architectural walking guide written by Catherine Gudis. More route information can be found at ciclavia.org.

This will be the last Iconic Wilshire Boulevard route until the completion of major street level construction of the Metro Purple Line subway extension through the Miracle Mile.

Iconic Wilshire Boulevard also coincides with the national Open Streets Summit, April 4-6, which CicLAvia is co-hosting along with the Open Streets Project. The summit will bring together open streets leaders from around the country, including experts in urban planning, alternative transportation and bike and pedestrian advocacy to consider best practices and new opportunities.

Travel Wilshire Boulevard between One Wilshire in Downtown and Fairfax Avenue along Museum Row. These two anchor hubs will be pedestrian-only zones with cultural programming, food trucks and more. Additional hubs include MacArthur Park, Koreatown and Mid-Wilshire.

We were going to suggest a feeder ride…but entrance to the course is so easy for our area. Hope to run into lots of familiar faces out there next Sunday!
