Announcing the April 10 2011 Route – Same as the Wonderful October Route!

February 15, 2011 at 4:05 pm 20 comments

Woooot! Wooooooot! We can hardly wait for April!

As CicLAvia blog readers know, there have been discussions on tweaking the route – either on the east end (Boyle Heights, Little Tokyo) or west end (East Hollywood, Koreatown.) CicLAvia put the possible route modifications out for discussion, met with Metro, LADOT, Mayoral staff and others… and today we’ve finalized the April 10th 2011 route… and… well… it’s exactly the same streets as 10-10-10! (map below) Last October was a huge success… and we may still modify the route at some point in the future… but for April, we’re going with the tried and true.

meet the new map, same as the old map!

CicLAvia is looking at slight tweaks to two crossing points to make for smoother cross-traffic flow… and to slightly rework the end of the route at the Hel-Mel Bicycle District – in order to better accomodate local access. If there are other minor (or even future major) tweaks you’d like to see, let us know in the comments below! RSVP and share via the 4.10.2011 Facebook event.

    wouldn’t it make sense for the CICLAVIA route to go thru UNION STATION ? That way people from all directions will have easier access to the route

    • 2. Joe Linton  |  February 15, 2011 at 4:44 pm

      Thanks for the suggestion! We’re five blocks from Union Station – easy walk/bike distance. Quite a few folks last year took Amtrak to Union Station and walked/biked to the route. We’ll keep that connection in mind in the future, too!

    Can’t wait! I would love to see future CicLAvias find their way into the Valley. Maybe an extension to Hollywood/Highland or Hollywood/Vine upward through the Cahuenga Pass to Studio City?

    • 4. Joe Linton  |  February 17, 2011 at 1:16 pm

      We’re hoping to get to some additional locations (Valley, West Side, etc.) in 2012. One thing to keep in mind regarding the Cahuenga Pass… is that we do try avoid hills – we have a lot of families and beginners – so going uphill can be difficult, and downhill can be dangerous. One possible flatter connection would be Chinatown-LARiver-Glendale-Burbank, then further into the Valley. We encourage you to bring Valley folks to the April CicLAvia – so that we can build more Valley support!

      this is a great idea. however adding on to your route the day of really messes with busses. that sucked at hollywood/highland.

    I rank last year’s CicLAvia as one of the Top Ten things I have done in my 62 years in the LA area.! It was awesome and a bit eerie to ride through an area that has seen nothing except gasoline and diesel vehicles for the last 100 years. A must do event for all cyclists. Let’s all go this year.

  • 10. Alix Benson  |  March 19, 2011 at 6:44 pm

    I would like to know exactly where this event will take place. I don’t which end of the map is the starting place. You say “same place as last year” Where is it please. I am very interested in this event. I just don’t know where to go. Help, Alix

  • 12. Joe Linton  |  March 20, 2011 at 10:51 am

    Alix – There’s no “starting point” – you can start wherever you want, and do as much or as little as you like.

    • 13. Alix Benson  |  March 20, 2011 at 11:19 pm

      Oh, ok. Thanks so much Joe. That helps. Alix

  • 18. Flying Merkel  |  April 6, 2011 at 6:59 pm

    Are there any significant hills? Going to be doing this ride with my 10 year old nephew, want to be prepared.

    I live downtown and take take the bus everywhere and this event was the most annoying thing to happen in years. I tried to get my baby to her sitters and a standard 20 min bus ride turned into 1 1/2 hours! Why not have the bike route at the coast where it will not prohibit or inhibit people who have places to go. Stop taking over!!!!
