An unprecedented 15 miles of car-free space

Los Angeles will celebrate its 6th CicLAvia on Sunday, April 21, and for the first time, the route will connect the city’s historic center at El Pueblo de Los Angeles in downtown and the bustling boardwalk of Venice Beach by way of Venice Boulevard, creating an unprecedented 15 miles of car-free space on City roads for strolling, biking, playing, and experiencing the city from a new perspective.  The new route showcases the urban and natural beauty unique to Los Angeles, offering a rich tour of the city’s history, diverse neighborhoods, and majestic views of the Pacific Ocean.

CicLAvia is Los Angeles’ adaptation of Ciclovía, a phenomenon that began more than 30 years ago in Bogotá, Colombia, where every Sunday 80 miles of streets become closed to car traffic with the goals of reducing pollution and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
