Colorado and Fair Oaks, Pasadena, CA
9:00am to 5:00pm
Pasadena has played host to parades, bike races and music festivals, and for the first time is opening its streets to the largest car-free open streets event in America. CicLAvia – Pasadena Presented by Metro takes place from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 31. The city will lend its own charm and flair to CicLAvia as participants travel along Colorado Boulevard, and down side streets to parks and historic architecture using foot, pedal and non-motorized wheel power. Go Metro to CicLAvia, the event route will connect to the Memorial and Del Mar the Metro Gold Line Stations enabling participants to have a car-free or car-lite day.
CicLAvia – Pasadena Presented by Metro is the most walkable CicLAvia to date at 3.5 miles. The cozy distance will offer participants the opportunity to peruse and explore Pasadena’s business gems and cultural treasures. Spurs off the main route on Raymond Avenue and Lake Street will take participants to local parks. And CicLAvia’s new partnership with Kurios - Cabinet of Curiosities, Cirque du Soleil's newest touring Big Top show, coming to southern California this fall, will give participants young and old a smile-inducing and awe-inspiring entertainment adventure.
The Pasadena route is made possible with a grant from Metro Los Angeles.
New to CicLAvia? Here are four things you need to know for May 31:
It's not a race and you don't need a bike to participate. You can walk or skate to your heart's content.
There's no beginning or end. You can start anywhere and go as far or as short as you want.
The flow of participants goes both ways, just like regular traffic.
