CicLAvia-South LA presented by Metro will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 10, in partnership with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT).
The event will open up three miles of Western Avenue, from Exposition Blvd. to Florence Avenue, so that the neighborhoods of Vermont Square, Harvard Park, Chesterfield Square, Exposition Park, and King Estates can experience the joy of safe, people-powered transportation on car-free open streets.
CicLAvia is for all ages and abilities. The public is invited to bike, skate, scooter, run, walk, skateboard, hitch a free ride on a pedi-cab, spectate and enjoy the open street route. CicLAvia is free and residents are invited to show up anywhere along the route at any time and have fun.
CicLAvia turns public streets into public parks for a day. Instead of building permanent infrastructure, CicLAvia builds unifying social fabric, connecting culturally diverse neighborhoods and neighbors to each other through open streets.
Whether one bikes, walks, strolls, skates, or jogs, CicLAvia creates more incredible moments and experiences enjoying our city streets together. Inspired by Bogotá’s weekly ciclovía, CicLAvia temporarily closes streets to car traffic and opens them to Angelenos to use as a public park.
Only people-powered vehicles are allowed. No electric scooters, skateboards, hoverboards, unicycles, motorcycles or other non-people-powered vehicles allowed at CicLAvia. Class 1 e-bike pedal-assist allowed. Class 2 e-bikes are allowed when the throttle is powered off. Class 3 e-bikes allowed when pedal-assist is powered off. Motorized wheelchairs are allowed.
