While it’s anyone’s guess just how many thousands of cyclists attended today’s CicLAvia — To the Sea route, anyone who rode the 15-mile route between Downtown L.A. and Venice Beach can attest it was bike bumper to bike bumper most of the way.
This year’s gargantuan bicycle ride was the longest to date, kicked off in the early morning by L.A. City Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and a slew of local officials. The mayor announced “Car-Free L.A,” a new campaign from LA Tourism that encourages tourism on bikes, public transit and walking. Check out the web site here.
Here’s some photos from the magnificent ride on another picture perfect Spring day in L.A.
