CicLAvia—South LA

On Sunday, December 4, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Metro presents CicLAvia-South LA, 7.25 miles of car-free open streets for all to enjoy as a temporary park space – free of charge. Participants of all ages and abilities can play, explore local gems, and sightsee, while experiencing the joy of safe, people-powered transportation on car-free open streets. The CicLAvia-South LA is an opportunity to explore the streets connecting Exposition Park, Historic South Central, Florence-Firestone, and Watts.

Show up anywhere along the route at any time and have fun! Hubs have restrooms, free water refilling stations, free basic bike repair, bike parking, and first aid. In addition, free pedicab rides courtesy of AARP are available at each information booth.

CicLAvia is a nonprofit that catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation, and good health through car-free streets. It has never been more important to improve people’s lives and strengthen communities, breaking free from isolation, exploring the connection between our health and our planet's health and to support sustainable systems and materials that sync with nature. Instead of building permanent infrastructure, CicLAvia builds unifying social fabric, joyously connecting culturally diverse neighborhoods and neighbors to each other through open streets. CicLAvia is not just about cycling, it’s also about multiple modes of people-powered transportation. Whether one walks, strolls, skate, jogs, scooter, or bikes, CicLAvia creates so many incredible moments and experiences enjoying our city streets together.

More than just an open streets movement, CicLAvia helps communities re-imagine a greener and cleaner Los Angeles, while also promoting equitable transportation options, healthier lifestyles, and closer connections to community. Inspired by Bogotá’s weekly ciclovía, CicLAvia has been temporarily closing streets to car traffic and opening them as public parks in Los Angeles since 2010. With more than 259 miles of open streets, South LA is CicLAvia’s 42nd event.
