This marks a significant expansion for the event, which began with a smaller route in 2010.

“What we wanted to show was that CicLAvia wasn’t just about being in downtown Los Angeles,” said Aaron Paley, executive director of CicLAvia.

Sunday’s route will stretch 15 miles, from the city’s historic center El Pueblo de Los Angeles all the way to Venice Beach.

Bikers are encouraged to stop along the way to explore the city at local restaurants and shops.

The event is not a race, but rather an immersive Los Angeles experience. [Read more…]
