TEN Ways to Get to CicLAvia

Here we are at number TEN on CicLAvia’s TEN top TEN lists for CicLAvia on TEN TEN TEN. Earlier top TEN listings were: churches, mysteries (contest!), public spaces, things to do, public artneighborhoods, problems, historic buildings, reasons, and partridges in pear trees. Instead of focusing on what to do at CicLAvia, we’re going to suggest TEN ways of getting there and back!


1. Drive a Car

Contrary to some popular opinions, yes, Virginia, you can definitely drive to CicLAvia. Even though it’s a car-free celebration. Your car won’t explode. Unless it was going to do that already. When’s the last time you changed the oil? Some nearby streets may be a bit congested. It may not be easy to park. But those things aren’t uncommon. We don’t necessarily want to encourage driving… but it’s definitely an option, and probably the best choice for a lot of people.

2. Carpool

Walking and biking are mucho more fun in groups. So gather up your sister, your cousin, your mom (of course), your neighbor, the guy down the street on the left, and that cute waitress you’ve been trying to muster up the nerve to talk with… and pack them all in the van, and drive down together. Make an event of it! If you want to share a ride with a stranger, maybe post on or Craigslist. Get your passengers to pay for gas, too!

3. Walk

If you live within a mile or two of the route, try walking! It’s actually easier and faster than you tend to think, and it’s pretty much the best exercise in the known universe, ’cause it’s not strenuous and our bodies were built for it. It’s also great in groups – so walk with a friend, relative, significant other, a cute waiter, a passing stranger, and the walking time will fly by. (more…)
