10/7/12 – CicLAviaIf 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.

For the first time, we’re going to Exposition Park, Chinatown, Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights, and the newly completed Grand Park downtown, where CicLAvia will converge with the inaugural celebration of the park’s performance lawn.

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!

If you want to rent a bike, Bike Nation is offering bike rentals with a suggested donation, all of the proceeds will go to CicLAvia. The bikes will be available at the Mariachi Plaza Hub and the Grand Park Hub. Click the link to learn more and reserve a rental.

Of course, groups could form feeder rides to and from the event!
Directions and a map (pdf) to look over might give you some ideas.

Could be a great model for something similar here in the OC, a CiclOCia if you will.

Which city will be first; Santa Ana, Anaheim, Irvine, HB, Orange?
