Los Angeles’ first Ciclovi­a-style street closure event is taking place this coming Sunday, October 10. From the CicLAvia website:

Inspired by Ciclovia, the original, weekly street closure event in Bogotá, Colombia, CicLAvia opens LA streets to pedestrians and bicyclists, creating a temporary web of public space on which residents of Los Angeles can walk, bike, socialize, celebrate and learn more about their own city. On 10/10/10, 7.5 miles of roadways will temporarily close to car traffic and open for recreational purposes. From Boyle Heights to Downtown, MacArthur Park to East Hollywood, CicLAvia encourages Angelenos to not only make active use of their streets, but to rediscover the roadways and neighborhoods that too often go unnoticed in a car. Help open LA’s streets… take part in the first ever CicLAvia on 10/10/10.

    Alan, sounds like a lotta fun. I’d like to see such events on a more local scale in smaller areas.

    By the way, Oct 10 is this Sunday, not Saturday as noted in your intro.
