To all of our LA readers and/or everyone else who will be visiting Los Angeles this weekend, come hang with us in the big city!

The Coachella Valley Art Scene will be crafting with used bike inner tubes (thank you Palm Springs Cyclery & King’s Ride Shop) at The Music Center’s Lines & Lanes curated fun area for the CicLAvia community bike event.

If you will be in Los Angeles, you HAVE to go to this – it’s amazing.

Get all the details about cicLAvia here.  Also, keep in mind the crafts are always free, so what do you got to loose?  Nothing, only to gain.

See ya then!




The next event is October 6, 2013!

To encourage safe, vibrant public spaces, sustainable
transportation, and public health through a program of car-free street events.

Company Overview

Inspired by the original ciclovía in Bogotá Colombia, CicLAvia addresses five important issues in Los Angeles today: public space, public health, community and economic development, and promoting walking and biking.

CicLAvia is a free and recurring event that allows for the temporary closing of interconnected routes throughout the region, creating a web of public space in which Angelenos can walk, bike, exercise, socialize, celebrate, and explore new cultures and neighborhoods. Similar events occur in many other cities around the US like Portland, New York and San Francisco. The Bogóta ciclovía also has inspired programs in Mexico City, Guadalajara, Quito and Melbourne.




The Heart of LA will once again pulse with the energy of CicLAvia as the car-free program returns to Downtown Los Angeles. More than 150,000 people will engage with the historic city center, cultural districts, businesses and each other in ways that aren’t possible in a car.

CicLAvia – Heart of LA will encompass 7.5 miles of city streets. The route will take participants to Chinatown, the Piñata District, the Historic Core, Boyle Heights, South Los Angeles, Westlake and MacArthur Park, Little Tokyo, Central Avenue and Grand Park/Civic Center.

CicLAvia – Heart of LA will connect participants with downtown by foot, bike, skates or other non-motorized transport. The day will feature music, food, open houses, museum tours and more. The October 6 program is the eighth CicLAvia to take place since 2010. Five of the previous CicLAvias have taken place downtown, but this is the first in 2013.
