CicLAvia is back for 2018 just in time for Earth Day this Sunday (April 22) with a brand new route through the Western Inland Empire. CicLAvia Heart of the Foothills will give residents and visitors the chance to walk, run, bike, and skate on car-free streets through San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona and Claremont. The free event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Metrolink San Bernardino Line stops along the route at Pomona North and Claremont stations and Metrolink is adding an extra train in both the morning and afternoon. The morning train leaves Union Station at 9:30 a.m. and the afternoon train will depart Claremont at 3:13 p.m. Check out the Metrolink schedule here.
These two trains will have two full bike cars and the other trains Sunday will have half a bike car each. Space for bikes is first come, first served. You can also get to CicLAvia by taking the Gold Line to the APU/Citrus College, where you can catch a bike shuttle to the San Dimas Hub. The Gold Line and the rest of Metro’s bus and rail system will be free to celebrate Earth Day, but note that regular fares still apply on Metrolink.
Whether you arrive by bike or on foot, there will lots of activities to enjoy. Participants can shop for fresh fruits and vegetables at farmers markets in San Dimas and Claremont, listen to live music and poetry in Pomona, explore Old Towne La Verne and more!
CicLAvia is funded through the Metro Open Street Grant Program, an initiative aimed at encouraging sustainable transportation and letting Angelenos explore the possibilities of car-free streets. Metro hopes that the event will help residents reimagine the future of transportation in Los Angeles County. Metro staff will be on hand at the San Dimas hub to answer questions about ongoing Metro projects and programs. We look forward to seeing you Sunday!
