CicLAvia Feeder Rides – Join One or Create Your Own!

ride to CicLAvia and ride in CicLAvia

If you’re not an ultra-intrepid bike rider, bicycling to CicLAvia on your own may be daunting… so folks are hosting feeder rides. Riding in a group is more comfortable, safer, and, of course, more fun! If you’re driving in, drive a bit less, get easier parking, and join a feeder ride. If you’re bicycling, meet up with other like-minded folks on your way. These rides aren’t created by CicLAvia’s organizers – they’re self-organizing, by folks wanting to ride to CicLAvia together. Below are the rides that we know about so far – Eagle RockDowntown L.A., Highland Park, San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel Valley, South L.A. and UCLA!  Some of these crop up at the last minute – and some change at the last minute, too – check with organizers! Some of these are long, some short, some faster some slower – if you’re unsure if a specific feeder ride is for you, please check in with organizers. We’ll keep an as-up-to-date-as-possible listing on our How To Get to CicLAvia page.

If you’re interested in leading a feeder ride – pick a meet-up location and a departure time, and leave it in the comments here – or, even better, add it on the CicLAvia activities page. If you want, publish your route, and folks can join up along the way, too!
