Yesterday a part of LA ditched the cars and went the way of the bicycle in the 10th CicLAVia event. CicLAvia is held biannually and is meant to give traffic-stressed Angelenos a break from gridlock. The specified route is closed to vehicles, making the street safe for biking, walking, skateboarding, you name it. It’s a temporary park established on LA’s normally crazy streets.
The event yesterday stretched from Olvera Street in downtown LA all the way to Venice Beach — 15 miles in total.
The original Ciclavias started in Bogota, Colombia, as a way to reduce traffic and pollution in that city, and the concept has spread throughout Latin America and now since 2010 to LA.
The next scheduled CicLAvia will be on Wilshire Boulevard on June 23.

The tour was a lot of fun and he even took us to less well known spots for some great photo ops! Definitely recommend doing and would absolutely do another tour with these guys when next back in LA!

- “LOOK NO FURTHER”
I can recall doing a bus tour of LA a number of years ago, and that tour did not remotely compare to what we experienced with our number one guide Rivers. Our family of four, including two boys aged 13 and 10, had the best day possible.

- “Worth the Splurge”
Eight hours seems like a lot of time, but the day just flew by. It was so fun and interesting. I would do this again with no regrets.
