CicLAvia Has Released A Lineup of Wonderful Gifts For Good In Their Virtual Store for the Holidays
Known for catalyzing vibrant public spaces, active transportation and good health through car-free streets, and working on future events as soon as the city provides the go-ahead, CicLAvia is going strong as it ventures into its’ next decade. CicLAvia has become the largest event of its kind in the U.S. and a leader in the global Open Streets movement.
The first CicLAvia event took place on October 10th, 2010, with a stretch of open streets from East Hollywood through downtown L.A. into Boyle Heights. More than 100,000 Angelenos turned out with people-powered transportation (bicycles, walking, skateboarding, scooters, running, pedicabs, etc.), exceeding expectations.
Ten years and 35 CicLAvias later, more than 1.8 million people of all ages have explored nearly 226 miles of open streets in L.A. County.
Each CicLAvia route is 6-8 times larger than the median size of L.A.’s existing public parks.
Show your CicLAvia pride all year long (and during the pandemic) by purchasing gifts for good!
All proceeds benefit CicLAvia, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
