How to Bring a Ciclovia to Your Neighborhood

Walking Distance: Notes on the Modern Neighborhood

GOOD magazine’s Kyla Fullenwider is at it again! She pitched CicLAvia at her GOOD blog last February. Last week her Walking Distance: Notes on the Modern Neighborhood piece How to Turn Your Streets into Sidewalks included a mini how-to article on bringing ciclovias to your neighborhood. Below is an excerpt, read the full post here.

With the rise of car culture over the last half century, our roads have grown bigger and wider, while our sidewalks have grown smaller and more narrow. The global movement “Ciclovia” wants to reverse that trend, at least for a day. For 30 years the car-clogged streets of Bogota have been transformed into people-filled public spaces hosting games, dance classes, and thousands of cyclists.
 
The idea has caught on and spread throughout South America and up north to places like Ontario, New York, and El Paso. Now Los Angeles is joining the ranks of Ciclovia cities with their own CicLAvia this September. Miles and miles of asphalt normally occupied by automobiles will be turned over to a parade of pedestrians, cyclists, and walkers. Wondering how you can make this happen in your town? We turned to one of the CicLAvia organizers, Joe Linton, for answers.

We think that’s GOOD!

CicLAvia one of GOOD Magazines Top Ten Ideas

Walking Distance: Notes on the Modern Neighborhood

GOOD Magazine’s columnist Kyla Fullenwider’s Walking Distance column has a new article entitled Neighborhood Pride: Ten Ideas To Boost Block Spirit. Among quite a few excellent ideas (gardens,  potlucks,  and even treehouses!) her third idea specifically calls for CicLAvia in Los Angeles:

3. Make every Sunday a block party.

Sundays are lazy time, and the worldwide movement Ciclovia has taken advantage of our weekend sloth. “There’s less traffic on Sunday,” says [Joe] Linton, one of the organizers of cicLAvia an initiative to bring the car free days to the car capital of the world. Aside from the obvious benefits of music and picnics in the street, letting the bikes take over can be a boon to the local economy. “Many local shops see their business double,” Linton says.

Read the rest of the article here. CicLAvia thinks this is GOOD!
