CicLAvia: Dogtown to Downtown on April 21st!

Cool news! CicLAvia, the “car-free street party”, will include Venice Beach as part of their April 21st happening! During the event, CicLAvia will repurpose Venice Boulevard from Figueroa in Downtown LA to Ocean Front Walk in Venice from 8am to 5pm (eastbound auto traffic will be allowed from Abbot Kinney to Crenshaw), encouraging residents to walk, bike, skate or blade the route. Get out and enjoy your city on this special day!

From CicLAvia:

CicLAvia is recognized as one of the city’s most innovative initiatives – a large-scale, public celebration that has come to symbolize Los Angeles’ civic, cultural, and environmental resurgence. With more than 100,000 participants each time, CicLAvia is one of the nation’s most inclusive urban events.

CicLAvia challenges the stereotype of Los Angeles as a car-addicted, smog-choked megalopolis, and gives people a chance to enjoy the benefits of the city’s improved walkability, bikeability, public transit, and vibrant street life. CicLAvia is free of charge and open to all. No reservations are required. 

CicLAvia will be produced three times in 2013, unveiling two new routes in the upcoming year. The April 21st CicLavia will go from downtown Los Angeles to Venice Beach; the June 23rd CicLAvia will go from downtown Los Angeles to Fairfax along Wilshire Boulevard; and the October 6th CicLAvia will be centered in Downtown with routes extending to Boyle Heights, Chinatown, Expostion Park and Westlake.
