Inspired by Bogota's ciclovias -- citywide street closures designed to promote walking, biking and playing in public spaces -- Los Angeles hosts its latest CicLAvia, this time along Wilshire Boulevard.
From the Ciclavia website:
The CicLAvia -- Iconic Wilshire Boulevard route will connect One Wilshire in Downtown Los Angeles to Fairfax Avenue along Miracle Mile. These two anchor hubs will feature pedestrian zones with performers, activities sponsored by several fantastic museums, programming by some of our community partners, food trucks and more. Additional hubs along the route include MacArthur Park, Koreatown and Mid-Wilshire.
A free downloadable podcast about the history and architeture of Wilshire Boulevard will also be available. The event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, including a full map, go to www.ciclavia.org.
