We’re happy to share that, as the year’s end approaches, commentators are recalling CicLAvia. The Los Angeles Times Thanksgiving editorial They made our days lists “newsmakers, news events and newcomers that have enlivened this year.” The editorial states:

We’re grateful to: … The organizers of CicLAvia, an Oct. 10 event that saw a short route through downtown L.A. closed to cars and open to cyclists and walkers, turning the streets into a 7 1/2-mile-long park. More, please.

The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, which we work very closely with, acknowledged that they too are thankful for “a very successful first CicLAvia.” CicLAvia also made the 2010 Nice List in a splendid piece over at Blogging.LA which included this:

Businesses along the route were packed to the gills, proving that foot traffic is better for business than can’t-find-a-place-to-park traffic.  It was like Park Day times one million.  It was wonderful.
