Diego Cardoso Paints CicLAvia

CicLAvia 2010 painted by Diego Cardoso

Earlier in December, some of the CicLAvia non-profit folks met with Mayor Villaraigosa’s staff working on CicLAvia. All in attendance were excited to discover a new painting on the wall of the mayor’s waiting room area: a painting depicting the 10-10-10 CicLAvia. CicLAvia helped inspire countless smiles, thousands of photos, dozens of videos, a wedding, and at least one painting! (more…)

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)

Rolling CicLAvia Interview Videos

Check out these four rolling interviews filmed by muti-talented bicyclist Aaron Kuehn – who also did the 4th Street Bike Boulevard rendering we shared a few weeks ago. It’s great to see the perspective atop CicLAvia Board President Bobby Gadda‘s tall bike. Bobby is one of two people who visited ciclovías in Bogotá, Colombia, and then started the push for bringing ciclovía to Los Angeles. We’re really glad he did! 

Next up is an interview with Jimmy Lizama… a Los Angeles legend: one of the founders of the Bicycle Kitchen, on the initial board of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, currently wrenching at Flying Pigeon bike shop and the Bicycle Morgue in back of Los Angeles Eco-Village. El Jimmy was one of the organizers of CicLAvia’s Midday Ridazz kids ride, and also CicLAvia’s capoeira circle. And his laugh is positively infectious!
