Ciclavia; Los Angeles’ Premier Bicycle Event For The Recreational & Family Groups

"...........The next CicLAvia is less than a month away.......LA's biggest block party returns on Sunday, October 7 – one week after Carmageddon II and one week before the dramatic arrival of the space shuttle Endeavour. It’s a car-free trifecta for Los Angeles!........We’re particularly excited about this CicLAvia because we’ve developed a new route featuring some of our city's most amazing destinations. For the first time, we’re going to Exposition Park, Chinatown, Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights, and the newly completed Grand Park downtown, where CicLAvia will converge with the inaugural celebration of the park’s performance lawn........The upcoming CicLAvia also includes many longtime favorites, such as MacArthur Park, the ride to and through downtown along 7th and Spring Streets, Little Tokyo, and, of course, the 4th Street Bridge – with its million-dollar view of the downtown skyline. As always, CicLAvia will also offer a wide variety of activities for people of all interests and ages, including music, performances, food trucks galore, and just about everything else L.A. has to offer!......."-http://www.ciclavia.org/next-event/

So there you have it. I don't need to add anything else except if you are in the area (visiting or residing), do come!

There will be many bike groups & activities at the Ciclavia for all tastes and riding styles. A good example of one is the Small Wheel Group Of Los Angeles which will meet at the event. See their Facebook page for more information: http://www.facebook.com/groups/276203045735245/

Remember that most cyclists in the Los Angeles area is recreational in orientation.

I thoroughly enjoyed the one earlier this year and am excited about the upcoming one! If you ride to go fast, don't bother. If you ride to see things, join us!! Last time around I "discovered" a museum I hadn't known existed, and hunted down the Challenger memorial in Little Tokyo. Old signs, architecture, things you just wouldn't notice from a car. Way cool!! Also got to meet BikeSnobNYC and bought his new book (and had it autographed).

Some Good Bicycle Groups To Check Out (read full article for more information):

".......Bikerowave

The group: This all-ages crowd consists of mechanics from the Bikerowave co-op shop (and surrounding shops), plus a handful of Westsiders. The riders are mostly beginner to intermediate.

Flying Pigeon Los Angeles

The group: More than 200 participants turn out for this ride—from riders in costume; to families with kids and trailers in tow; to those for whom their bikes are their babies.

Watts Labor Community Action Committee + East Side Riders

The group: Friends of the Watts Labor Community Action Committee (proudly boasting ages 5-65) meet up with a local bike club, East Side Riders, for a large, multi-generational family-friendly ride. Expect to ride with at least 45 or so Watts regulars, many sporting customized cruisers.

Caltech Bike Lab

The group: The Bike Lab, an offshoot of Caltech's cycling club, organizes this ride comprised mostly of students—with community members of all ages sprinkled in.

Midnight Ridazz

The group: What started nine years ago as a small group of friends going on a nightly bike ride has grown into a wide collective of bike enthusiasts who now converge on the Midnight Ridazz online forum. Check out groups like Los Angelopes, known for their quirky, wild-looking bikes. If you're seeking out a party ride, hit up The Beastsiders from the Eastside and Crank Mob from the Westside......."
