“Get out of your car for just a couple of hours and walk or take your skateboard or bicycle and see neighborhoods that you don’t know,” Aaron Paley, the event’s co-founder, tells KNX 1070.
Previous routes have taken participants through downtown, East Los Angeles, the Westside, and Wilshire Boulevard.
CicLAvia is open to the public and free of charge. Registration is not required and there is no start or end point along the route.
