How CicLAvia Engaged Angelenos in the Space and Place of L.A.
CicLAvia's sixth installment, billed as "To the Sea," brought out hundreds of thousands of Angelenos to ride or walk on a temporarily closed 15-mile route from City Hall to Venice Beach. For a five-hour stretch the city, known for its privileging of the autopia ecology, opened the streets to bicycles, pedestrians, skateboarders, and performances and celebrated Los Angeles in unique ways that allowed Angelenos to experience the geographic diversity of the city.
As much as CicLAvia has become known for the monumental effort it takes to close down the streets and invite bicycles and others for public use, the story of CicLAvia nevertheless remains to be about how participants are personally engaged by the event.
