Scenes from a Sunday Ride on the CicLAvia Route
The classiest way to do it: Fine dining, CicLAvia style. Of course, extra props to these people for sticking with the plan even as the temps reached 90 degrees.
Another beautiful return to CicLAvia this Sunday, as a handful of streets from downtown to Venice were shut down for bikes, strollers and pedestrians. We parked near El Pueblo and rode through downtown, making our way through MacArthur Park and all the way to Arlington before turning around. So no, we didn't make it to Venice, but that's quite all right. We enjoy the downtown vibe and biking through all those old buildings. Plus, the crowds were lighter than usual on the street, as I assume most folks wanted to see CicLAvia on the west side for the first time.
Some pics from our day on the road:

Yes, they really are pedaling that thing.
