The movement to change the city of Los Angeles’ image from car capital of the world to bicycle-riding, pedestrian-friendly city shows no sign of slowing down.
CicLAvia, the nonprofit organization that sponsors car-free street events, has announced that its fifth event will take place on Sunday, October 7, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., with new route extensions into South Los Angeles, Exposition Park, Chinatown and Boyle Heights.
Five of the six hubs along the route are new, and each one is situated near public transportation, including Expo Park on Figueroa on the Expo Line which runs west as far as Culver City. The other hubs are MacArthur Park; newly built Grand Park in Chinatown; Mariachi Plaza de Los Angeles and Soto Station in Boyle Heights.
“We are thrilled to extend our route this October into new neighborhoods giving more residents the opportunity to explore their streets and their city in a fun and safe way without cars” said Aaron Paley, CicLAvia’s co-founder and executive producer, in a news release.
