CicLAvia Time!

February 2, 2010 at 11:23 am 4 comments

As we set the schedule for CicLAvia, we ask ourselves, “How many hours should CicLAvia last?”, “What time will most people arrive?”, and “How late will people want to stay?”

For guidance, we researched other cities’ ciclovia programs. What we found is a range of start times between 7 A.M. and 10 A.M. and end times between 1 P.M. and 3 P.M.

Our current plan follows the Bogota model of 7 A.M. to 1 P.M. but I wonder if that window is ideal for Los Angeles. Would 9 A.M. to 3 P.M. work better? Both time frames are 6 hours long. Yet, the later time would allow for travel to CicLAvia and slow Sunday morning breakfasts.

What do you think? What time works best for you?

    I am definitely for staying open until 3pm. When I visited Bogota, I missed most of the Ciclovia both times i went because I didn’t get up early enough! (This was partly due to the 8,000 foot elevation, but still). I feel like every afternoon hour past one we can get will attract a lot more people who aren’t necessarily early risers.

    Recreation Sundays in Boston (on Memorial Drive) lasted from 11am to 7pm. Quite a long time! I personally would quit skating around at about 3pm to go home & get ready for a night out. Ideally the ciclavia should be open for as long as possible to accommodate the most individual schedule needs.

    Many people go to church on Sunday mornings, even in Los Angeles. I would vote for the afternoon, if it is logistically possible.

    Or could Ciclovia last 8 or 10 hours? That would be even better!

    Thanks for voting. Your feedback is really helpful.

    We can present this information along with our research of other events to City Staff. This is everyone’s CicLAvia, take ownership and tell us how you want it to be.

    If you haven’t weighed in on Route Length yet, do it now.
