CicLAvia will be back in the Arroyo Verdugo region of Los Angeles County this Sunday with a three-mile route connecting tranquil Atwater Village to bustling downtown Glendale. Portions of Glendale Boulevard, Central Avenue and Brand Boulevard will be closed to cars and open to cyclists, pedestrians, rollers, zumba enthusiasts, strollers and all other forms of non-auto transportation from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Participants will have easy connections to the route by either the L.A. River Bike Path or the Metrolink Glendale Station (hit those links for directions). In order to accommodate more bikes, Metrolink will be providing an additional bike car on all Antelope Valley Line trains running throughout the event.
The car-free event is funded by Metro through its Open Streets Grant Program, whose goal is to provide opportunities for riding transit, walking and riding a bike — possibly for the first time — and to foster civic engagement on transportation and infrastructure at the community level. Metro outreach staff will be on hand at the Brand Boulevard hub, so make sure to stop by for some Metro swag or to have any of your burning Metro-related questions answered.
Due to street closures for the event, some buses will be detouring in the area. Please check Metro’s Service Advisory page for more information. To find alternative routes and connections, use the Trip Planner or call 323.GO.METRO.
