    this sounds like an outstanding idea. please inform me as the time gets a little closer! i would like to bring my family out and enjoy a bike ride in downtown. will there be parking for those driving in, or will there be a discount on the metro?
    thanks for making this a go!

    • 2. Joe Linton  |  September 2, 2010 at 12:10 am

      There’s already plenty of parking: on street (mostly unmetered on Sundays) or at paid parking lots (mostly downtown, mostly a flat rate like $4-5 on Sundays.) We’re not planning to contract for any parking specific to the event. We haven’t planned for any Metro discounts either – the base fare is $1.50 for one-way or $6 for a day pass. See you downtown on Sunday 10-10-10!

    This cannot happen soon enough! Hopefully the success from this event will create enough positivity to continue it in various parts of the city on a monthly basis! Why should Critical Mass have all the fun?

    Very excited about this event and really looking forward to it…is the route very hillly? All I’ve got is a heavy beach cruiser, which isn’t too fun on hills.

    • 14. Joe Linton  |  September 23, 2010 at 1:46 pm

      The event is definitely doable on beach cruiser. In selecting the route, we had it in mind to avoid hills, and I think we did a good job – though there are a couple of minor hills, still.

      None of these are major, but there are small slopes on 4th Street near Boyle, on 7th at Figueroa, and on both sides of the 4th Street Bridge over the L.A. River.

    There will be a group riding to CICLAVIA from the San Gabriel Valley. We will be meeting up at the WALGREENS on MAIN St. & FREMONT Ave, Alhambra @ 8:30 am. We hope to roll out by 9:00 am. Family style ride, easy pace. Helmets, of course. We will ride together from Alhambra to Hollenbeck Park, the start of CICLAVIA. Check us on

    • 23. Ivan Brandler  |  October 7, 2010 at 11:43 am

      Great.I’ll be there.Where do I park ? Also,what is the duration of your ride ? Is the route doable both ways ?

  • 25. kathleen  |  October 5, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    This is so exciting! I would hope that something like this would catch on and become a recurring event…and spread out to even more miles. How about closing off Venice Blvd from downtown to Venice Beach? =)

  • 26. Cory  |  October 5, 2010 at 11:19 pm

    Hi ya all,

    It starts at 10:00 a.m., whtat time are the streets opened up?

    Please advise,


    • 27. Joe Linton  |  October 5, 2010 at 11:29 pm

      The streets open up at 10am! The city will be barricading and securing the route starting about 9:30am, and it will all be open by 10am.

      (It ends at 3pm, and the streets will allow cars back on starting shortly after 3pm and fully restored to status quo by ~3:45)

  • 28. David kipen  |  October 7, 2010 at 6:32 am

    Hey, I just realized that Ciclavia — sorry, internal punctuation is for rappers and internet startups — ends just three blocks south of my new Boyle Heights lending library/used bookshop, Libros Schmibros! I don’t usually keep Sunday hours, but this is just too good to miss. By all means, everybody who makes it to Hollenbeck Park please coast on up to Libros Schmibros at 2000 E. 1st St., just across Cummings St. from the freeway. We have half a dozen books by new-minted Nobel laureate Mario Vargas Llosa — all in English so far, but check back — and only about 7,000 more besides…

    All finest,

  • […] This Sunday, October 10th 2010 (10-10-10) the city will host its first CicLAvia – a free bicycling and walking festival event that really has little to do with creeks and water issues in L.A. (other than that creek-bike stuff I bring up from time to time), but because I am working hard to make CicLAvia a success, I figured I would plug it here, with an article about the historic 4th Street Bridge over the Los Angeles River – a bridge featured on the CicLAvia route.

    Will I be allowed to bike back on the same route?. back to my truck.

    • 34. Joe Linton  |  October 7, 2010 at 12:39 pm

      Yes – the entire 7-mile route is open for biking and walking from 10am to 3pm. And if you don’t get back to your truck by 3pm, then, After 3pm you can still bike on the streets (or sidewalks, or take Metro.)

    this is a lame idea… to make LA a bike friendly place, every street will need to be completely redesigned and jerk bicyclist will have to learn the rules of the road. I hate bicyclist!!!!

  • 61. Michael B  |  April 10, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    The LA times did a pretty good article about Ciclavia but the comments are all from car people and are very negative. It would be a great thing if we posted some positives of Ciclavia on the Times site. 🙂
