CicLAvia - Heart of LA
CicLAvia revisits its Heart of LA route, this year celebrating UCLA's centennial. The route explores Westlake, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Boyle Heights, and DTLA (where UCLA originally began as a teachers college).
The hubs are at Mariachi Plaza, Chinatown, Civic Center and MacArthur Park. Activities along the way include an Augmented Reality Sandbox, a bike safety checkpoint, performances and workout classes at the Mariachi Plaza Bandshell, and much more.
CicLAvia is derived from a Spanish term for "bike path," and its goal is to turn LA into one big bike path, if just for a few hours. People are encouraged to leave their cars at home and bike, walk, skateboard, or push a stroller to discover our beautiful city at non-motorized speeds. CicLAvia offers a wide variety of activities for people of all interests and ages, including music, performances, food trucks galore, and more.
