Biking Bis – Bicycle Touring and More :: Some 100,000 use bikes and feet in CicLAvia event

My friend Eileen, LCI instructor in Spokane, says Spokane wants to host a cyclovia event. If you didn’t know the cyclovia originated in Columbia. A portion of city streets are closed for a day, usually Sunday, to all motor traffic.

A 7 1/2-mile stretch of Los Angeles pavement was closed to cars and other motor vehicles on Sunday in an inaugural ciclovia event that exceeded everyone’s expectations.

An estimated 100,000 people walked or rode their bikes, skateboards, or rollerblades on the closed thoroughfares from East Hollywood, through downtown, and out to Boyle Heights on Sunday. The LA Times dutifully noted that police and fire departments reported no incidents.
