CicLAvia – To the Sea, Downtown <—> Venice

Sunday, April 21st marks the sixth round of CicLAvia, one of Los Angeles’s premiere public events. It returns in 2013 in a special fashion as the route, for the first time, will not only go through Council District 5, but will also connect the city’s downtown historic center with seaside Venice.
Fifteen miles of city road will be closed to motorists and transformed into a safe, car-free, open space for pedestrians and cyclists to gather, walk, bicycle, and experience Los Angeles from a different and whole new perspective. The program’s expansion to the coast enables participants to explore and traverse many of LA’s rich and diverse communities that lay between downtown and the sea, without the worries of traffic congestion and gridlock that normally plague our thoroughfares.
CicLAvia will begin at 10am and will end at 3pm. During this time, Eastbound Venice Blvd will be accessible to motorists. A full map of the route, crossing points for cars, and metro rail station locations in close proximity to the festival can be found at this link. Please visit the website whether you are participating in the event or traveling in the area.
There is much to see on the fifteen mile stretch, as it is often said that CicLAvia allows participants to encounter neighborhoods of their own and those unfamiliar to them with fresh eyes. In addition, there will also be several hubs stationed along the route to offer information, activities, free water, food vendors, restrooms, first aid, and other services.
There are a number of ways to experience and nagivate CicLAvia, so using the event’s Trip Planner is encouraged to make the day run smoother.  It is advised that you plan to return to your point of origin or destination by 3:00pm to avoid car traffic.
