CicLAvia Coverage This Week
Releasing the route for the planned September 12 CicLAvia – see it here – has resulted in quite a bit of CicLAvia coverage racing (also strolling) around the blogosphere. We’re very happy to have been featured in L.A. Streetsblog, GOOD, LAist, BlogDowntown, beyond design, Biking In L.A., L.A. Eco-Village and probably a few more places that we missed.
They all think that [note: we're paraphrasing here] cicLAvia is fabulously smilingly propitiously wonderful and will be the best thing for L.A. since either the Bradbury Building or the 1994 World Cup. And they all want you to go directly to our KickStarter page and start pledging ridiculously large wads of electronic cash. From the up to the minute display at the left, the mathematically inclined among you will easily deduce that CicLAvia is 71.7143% there toward our goal of $7000 for 7 miles.
In other marvilloso espectacular ciclovía coverage this week, L.A. environmentalist Ron Milam visits Mexico City and chances upon their weekly ciclovía. His account is here and here, and cicLAvia previously briefly covered the Districto Federal ciclovía here. Looks fun!
We’re also happy to be linked prominently at Pilot Yoxi - enjoy their cool vid about making cities better for bicycling, and look forward to seeing what they come up with.
