OCBC at CicLAvia !

The OCBC is looking for volunteers to help staff and provide support for the 4th CicLAvia this Sunday April 15th.

We will be located at the intersection of 3rd St and S. Alameda as seen below:

If we work in “mini-shifts” then we can also ride and support the event.  Who knows, you might even bring a bit of the magic to the OC to kindle the flame of inspiration for our own CiclOCia!

Rabobank Tour of California
team caps!

The next 9 Volunteers who sign up as OCBC “Intersection Angels” get a Rabobank cap. We need
11A – 1PM, and
1PM – 3PM, and
3PM – 4:30.

To volunteer Leave a Comment, we’ll confirm via e-mail.

If you’re looking for something to do the 15th, this is it. Pay it forward and get in on the fun!

Not only will you be helping a great cause succeed, you will bring back the seeds to plant and germinate here in the OC.    If we get enough people from a similar location, perhaps we could get a car, or vanpooly thing going.

 Weather forecast looks great!

Update: for those not sure about taking their own bikes,  rentals are available at the following places: Bike Nation USA,  Flying Pigeon, Downtown LA Bikes, and DTLA Bikes.

If you ever wanted to ride your bike sans traffic of the four wheel variety on the streets of the City of Angels, this event is for you! (because nobody walks in LA..!)
10 miles of roadways will temporarily close to car traffic and open for recreational purposes.
From Boyle Heights to Downtown, MacArthur Park to East Hollywood, El Pueblo/Olvera Street, and South LA, CicLAvia encourages Angelenos to not only make active use of their streets, but to rediscover the roadways and neighborhoods that too often go unnoticed in a car.

Metrolink and Amtrack are two ways to get to Union Station which is about 5 blocks away.
To bike from Union Station to CicLAvia: turn left/south on Alameda, then right on First Street, and you can’t miss it!

Of course, groups could form feeder rides to and from the event!
Could be a great model for something similar here in the OC.
Directions and a map (pdf) to look over might give you some ideas.
