Kids and their Families: Gary Leonard CicLAvia Photos part 2

Look, dad!

One of the most precious and wonderful things about CicLAvia was the huge number of kids and families out enjoying themselves in the safety of car-free Los Angeles streets.

With folks organizing the Midday Ridazz kids ride, we knew there would be a lot of families… but it was still such a dazzling sight to see kids on training wheels and realllly small bikes weaving through the streets of downtown Los Angeles. Wow. We had a difficult time editing down the great collection of family and youth photos by Gary Leonard. (All photos this post by Gary Leonard – click on picture for larger size)

Some of these kids have a slightly guilty look that seems to say some thing like “this playing in the street stuff is so fun, I must be doing something that’s against the rules… better enjoy before I get caught.”

And, lest you think that the joys of youth are the only things that warm our hearts, here’s one more. As we age gracefully, we want to be like this couple, cruising L.A.’s streets on their comforable 3-wheelers.

For more great CicLAvia photos, go here or here, or to the CicLAvia Flickr pool and our Facebook group page.
