CicLAvia

CicLAvia Opening streets for Angelenos.
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. Inspirado por la ciclovía original, el cierre de calles semanal en Bogotá, Colombia, CicLAvía trabajará para abordar cinco temas importantes presentes en todo Los Ángeles: el espacio público, la salud pública, el desarrollo comunitario y económico, y la defensa peatonal y de ciclismo.

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. Como un evento recurrente y gratuito, planeado el mismo día y hora cada semana o mes, CicLAvía permitirá la clausura temporal de rutas interconectadas a través de la región, creando una red de espacio público en la cual los residentes de Los Ángeles podrán caminar, andar en bicicleta, socializar, celebrar y aprender acerca de nuevas culturas y barrios. Eventos similares a éste han ocurrido de manera exitosa en otras ciudades de los Estados Unidos, como en Portland, Nueva York y San Francisco. La Ciclovía de Bogotá también ha inspirado programas en la Ciudad de México, Guadalajara, Quito y Melbourne.

Mission: To encourage safe, vibrant public spaces, sustainable transportation and public health through a program of car-free street events. Promover el espacio público seguro y animado, el transporte ecológico, y la salud pública por una programa de de acontecimientos de calles sin carros.

“It wasn’t just the bike in getting to work, it was the bike in going shopping, in meeting up with friends … I started to see things I’d never seen before in my community.” #biketoworkday
