The last CicLAvia of 2017 will take place this Sunday

It’s the last CicLAvia of the year! Ride your bike, stroll or skate down Wilshire Boulevard this Sunday, Dec. 10 at CicLAvia — Iconic Wilshire Boulevard. The route easily accessed by five Metro Rail stations. For those coming from further away, consider taking Metrolink to Union Station.

  • If coming to DTLA on the Expo or Blue Line, exit 7th/Metro Station.
  • If coming to DTLA on the Gold Line, transfer to the Red or Purple Line subway at Union Station.
  • Avoid long lines at TAP vending machines by loading fare or a pass on your TAP card in advance.
  • Regular fare for riding Metro is $1.75 and includes two hours of free transfers. Load $3.50 in Stored Value for a roundtrip ride.
  • Bicyclists should use the wider ADA fare gates and NOT the turnstiles or emergency exit swing gates.
  • If boarding with bicycle, please use allocated bike area on trains to avoid blocking doors.
  • Bikes are prohibited on escalators and should be transported instead via elevators or stairs at all rail stations.
Metro Bike Share is also available in DTLA for those who don’t have a bike of their own. Buy a pass before the event or use your credit card to check out a bike at a kiosk — $3.50 buys you 30 minutes.

Here is CicLAvia’s interactive map that shows interesting things to see and where to eat along the route. Here’s a page with info on Metro fares and timetables. And here’s a map of the Metro rail and busway system:

CicLAvia is funded through the Metro Open Streets Grant Program, which provides funding to events that temporarily close city streets to cars and open them to people walking, biking and rolling. The goal of the program is to offer people opportunities to walk and bike on local streets, try transit (maybe for the first time) and foster civic engagement that supports active transportation projects and programs.
