As expected, a big crowd came out yesterday for the first CicLAvia of 2017. It capped off a great month of open streets programs, with 626 Golden Streets in early March between South Pasadena and Azusa. On deck for May 5 is the Downey Ride and Stride and on June 11 is CicLAvia Glendale to Atwater. CicLAvia pics can be downloaded from our Flickr page.
CicLAvia: Culver City Meets Venice was funded through a grant from the Metro Open Streets Grant Program, which funds events throughout the County that temporarily close streets to automobiles and open them up to people to re-imagine their streets while walking, biking, rollerblading or pushing a stroller in a car-free environment. The goals of the program are to encourage sustainable modes of transportation (biking, walking and transit), provide an opportunity to take transit for the first time and provide an opportunity for civic engagement that can foster the development of city’s multi-modal policies.
