CicLAvia Comes to Heart of LA Sunday, October 6, 2013

Discover LA by Metro:
Take a Sunday Stroll Through LA from Union Station to the Sea with CicLAvia on Sunday April 21, 2013.
This Sunday’s CicLAvia, LA’s sixth, is taking a new route — Downtown to the sea, beating the Metro there by many years. The weather prediction is for a beautiful LA day, making this Earth Day Weekend a great time to be a part of LA’s biggest citywide block party.
From 10 a.m. – 3 pm. on Sunday, April 21, more than 15 miles of Los Angeles streets will be closed to cars —making this the longest CicLAvia route yet. This is a chance to enjoy LA and see it from a different perspective — from a bike, skateboard, or just leisurely strolling down the middle of the boulevard. There are many great views to be appreciated, because of both the pedestrian/bike perspective and the slowed-down pace.
One of the joys of CicLAvia is that you can start and stop whenever and wherever you want, and do it on your own schedule. This is not a race — it’s streets turned into open space.
Seeing the city streets filled with cyclists, skaters, and strollers — wheeled and on foot— makes one really appreciate that LA belongs to everyone from all neighborhoods.
With the opening of the Metro Expo line, Westside residents will be able to connect with CicLAvia by rail at the Expo Line Culver City Station.
The upcoming CicLAvia route includes hubs at past favorite spots: MacArthur Park, Pershing Square and 7th/Metro Center Station, and Union Station.
CicLAvia also hosts a wide variety of activities for people of all interests and ages, including music, performances, food trucks galore, and just about everything else L.A. has to offer!
Whether this is your first or sixth CicLAvia, plan on joining the fun on Sunday, April, 21.
