Brief Introduction:

With two hugely successful CicLAvia events under our belt, we are currently preparing for Los Angeles’ next couple “open-street” events: Sunday October 9th and tentatively April 2012.  Seven and a half miles of streets were car-free from 10 AM - 3 PM on Sunday October 10th 2010 and Sunday April 10th 2011. In 2011, we’re doing the initial route again and again, and reaching out to new neighborhoods and adding new spurs.

CicLAvia makes the streets will safe for people to walk, skate, play and ride a bike. There are activities along the route. Shop owners and restaurants are encouraged to open their doors to people along the CicLAvia.

CicLAvia temporarily removes cars from L.A. streets - and the streets fill up with smiles!

A Ciclovía is not just for recreation. It is social integration.

Ciclovías started in Bogotá, Colombia, over thirty years ago as a response to the congestion and pollution of city streets. Now they happen throughout Latin America and the United States, connecting communities and giving people a break from the stress of car traffic. The health benefits are immense. Ciclovías bring families outside of their homes to enjoy the streets, our largest public space.

In Los Angeles we need CicLAvia more than ever. Our streets are congested with traffic, our air is polluted with toxic fumes, our children suffer from obesity and other health conditions caused by the scarcity of public space and safe, healthy transportation options. CicLAvia creates a temporary park for free, simply by removing cars from city streets. It creates a network of connections between our neighborhoods and businesses and parks with corridors filled with fun. We can’t wait to see you at CicLAvia!

CicLAvia creates safe streets for Angelenos of all ages

    Maybe you should consider doing a panel next year at the National Conference of the American Planning Association to be held in New Orleasd April 10-14, 2010.

    How about using Huntington Drive in San Marino and South Pasadena.

    http://www.city-data.com/picfilesv/picv24203.php

    a three line traffic on each direction and greeen area as divider is the perfect place for a Sunday morning ride with the family.

    Lots of bikers use it on the weekend, but sometimes the carless drivers make it scary for a family and kids to ride on a bike. This is a place not a lot of traffic on the weekend

    i would love to help and support a plan like ciclavia in this area!

    Any suggestions?

    how about a route/loop in pasadena that starts down on huntington and heads up to the rosebowl?

    i have been threatened to be run over, driver pulled over to fight me, flew over my handlebars and broke a wrist/rib/shoulder separation when having to drive through construction.

    Pasadena, of all cities, should be a bike friendly city.

      I think this is a great idea an think it should be permanent! All these east/west routes to the beach are congested and dangerous to bicyclists. How wonderful would it be to make one of them open only to bicycle and pedestrian traffic!

    This is totally doable.
    I had great experience riding the Paseo de la Reforma in Mexico City on a Sunday morning. Paseo is a major artery in the capital. Cars are forbidden for a few hours. The feeling of taking over the street in a bike with flocks of other bicyclists is magical. Very hard to describe why it’s so elating. But it softens the city.

I commute to work from West Hollywood to downtown on my bike once a week now that I’m in LA so I’m well aware of the perils.

    You GO LA! One big trick is to find a way to reduce the daily costs of police coverage to make the program weekly and sustainable financially. Look into deputizing crossing guards, auxilary police, traffic saftey officers and most sustainably, have free or stipended volunteers trained in traffic control at the intersections. This is also a great way to get teens invovoved as they can take ownership of their block. I can’t wait to come back to LA and join you all for CicLAvia!

    Wow! You are really rockin’ out there with cicLAvia. Here in Baltimore we are carefully studying your model. We had a ciclovia last 25 October in one neighborhood. We are planning our next ciclovia for 31 October, hopefully to involve a few more.

    Here’s a local newspaper story about us:

    This is a fantastic idea, and as other have noted, will hopefully happen regularly and in different parts of LA (Westside, Passadena, etc). Take a look at what Portland does with it’s .
    Sunday Parkways events. They happen at different locations over the summer. Really neat.

    Notice it is put on and promoted by the City of Portland.
    There is absolutely NO reason LA can’t be as bicycle friendly as Portland. With relatively flat east to west terrain and fantastic weather, it should be a no-brainer!

      It’s 7.5 miles – and think of it more like a park than a race. You can start anywhere, reverse, take a break, explore – all you want within those 7.5 miles. If you’re looking for a long ride, go end-to-end and back and again and over and over… up to you.

    sounds good. as long as the bikes don’t run people over. it gets crazy when groups like critical mass run through and take over the street and don’t stop for pedestrians trying to cross a small residential road.

    is there any kind of system of organization in place to make space for pedestrians and bikes so that this doesn’t happen?

    Reply
    • 32. Joe Linton  |  October 5, 2010 at 10:33 am

      Thanks for the comment. Generally we’ll be requesting that folks follow the basic rule that faster traffic keeps to the left/center and slower traffic keeps to the right/curb. We don’t anticipate too much of an issue with this – with no cars parked, the streets on the route should be plenty wide enough for cyclists and pedestrians and skaters and wheelchairs t share. In pretty much all situations (including Critical Mass) bicyclists should yield to pedestrians.

      The route is 5-hours open streets. There’s no direction – you can bike (walk, skate, run, etc.) in any direction. There’s no start, no finish. You can start anywhere, end anywhere – go back and forth. See also our FAQ or this video to get a sense for it. It’s different than anything L.A. has done before!

    -saw Los Angeles and roads I drive on frequently in a new way
    -ate lunch in little tokyo (kids got yogurtland too – uggh!)
    -we got to see a broad cross section of the city be an active participant in civic events (beats having an NFL team)
    -sends a message how desperate this city is for outdoor recreation opportunities
    -sends a message that decades of trying to move cars around quickly might not have been the best idea (I see that the former head of LADOT participated and hope he can convince his former employees to embrace the needs of pedestrians and bikes first before cars)
    -we need more of these events soon (although hopefully my youngest will ride solo by then as the tag-a-long was killing me)

    I was wondering if next time you could try to avoid intersecting all the main east-west bus lines? I know that it seems as if a detour would ensure that bus service is uninterrupted. However, every time that there’s a good cause: marathon, triathalon, Silver Lake music fest, and on and on, bus service is completely disrupted. Instead of a 15 minute wait, we bus riders stand on the corner waiting for an hour or more – and that’s multiplied by the number of buses we need to take. I understand that people who live downtown have the option of taking the subway, but those of us living on the Westside do not, and bus service totally breaks down. So if you close the streets downtown and cut off the Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevard bus lines, sevice is disrupted all the way to the beach. Could you not map out a route that does not affect all of the bus service going west?

Can you provide us with your 10/10/10 budget? I realize Chicago and LA are two very different cities but we share the same concept. It will help us with the long term planning process.

    Why doesn’t the County of Los Angeles get involved and include a route though East LA?

    In Ottawa, Ontario, Canada’s Nation’s Capital, we have access to major roads for cycling, running, roller-blading every Sunday from Mid May to the beginning of September. (http://www.capcan.ca/bins/ncc_web_content_page.asp?cid=16297-16299-9970-9972&lang=1&bhcp=1) This is a great way to get out for some exercise and see the city you live in. It was a wonderful to read about the CICLAVIA initiative. Best of luck this year!
