Cyclists, pedestrians, fellow environmental and bicycle advocates and organizers of CicLAvia gathered today on the lawn of City Hall for a press conference with Mayor Villaraigosa inviting Angelenos to participate in LA’s first CicLAvia on October 10th, 2010. He was joined by Council President Eric Garcetti, Councilmembers Tom LaBonge, Bill Rosendahl, Ed Reyes, and Jose Huizar who highlighted how this event will encourage Angelenos to get out of their cars, ride bikes, walk, engage their communities, reclaim public space, enjoy the city they live in and most of all have fun.
CicLAvia will be a held from 10 am to 3 pm on 10-10-10. It is a free event and open to all. Please visit CicLAvia’s blog for 7-mile route, volunteer opportunities and other info.
LACBC is excited to be part of the efforts that brought CicLAvia to LA. This is the 1st CicLAvia in LA City and will bring increased awareness of the benefits of biking and walking to create more live-able communities. Please help spread the word to your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors. Wouldn’t it be great to see the 7-mile route packed with people!
