Scenes From CicLAvia, from Echo Park to East Los Angeles
CicLAvia was back this past Sunday, as thousands of Angelenos braved the heat and hit the empty streets with their bikes, skateboards, strollers and other contraptions. I was there, and rode my bike from Echo Park to the East Los Angeles Civic Center and back again -- drinking lots of water and eating many tacos along the way. (That'll be a separate post.) It was a great day -- here are some pics.

Oh thanks, Cic-LA-Via volunteer, you're awesome too!
