Ciclavia Expands for Second Los Angeles Outing; No Echo Park spur yet

Spurs from downtown to Boyle Heights, Chinatown and South LA were added this time. Hopefully bike crazy Echo Park will get a spur next time.


Here are the meeting spots -

  • Boyle Heights – suggest street parking east of Hollenbeck Park
  • Little Tokyo – limited street parking available, use pay parking lots
  • Downtown L.A. – limited street parking available, use pay parking lots
  • Westlake MacArthur Park – Quite a bit of street parking should be available either north or south of the route. From the north, perhaps take 3rd Street and turn south on any smaller street between Alvarado and downtown. From the south, perhaps take Olympic Boulevard and turn north on any smaller street between Hoover and Downtown.
  • Koreatown – Every day of the week, parking is not easy in the denser residential neighborhoods here. Early in the day, it may be not too difficult to park along commercial corridors, including Vermont Avenue.
  • East Hollywood - Be careful of residential permit parking in this area (including some on Heliotrope.) Suggest looking for parking on residential streets west of Heliotrope.
  • Fashion District - Some street parking, especially south of 9th Street, where many businesses are closed. Be careful, somewhat vacant area, with some transient populations. 
  • El Pueblo/Chinatown - very limited street parking available, use pay parking lots.

I was on one of the first route exploration teams of South LA - and we checked out the firefighter museum. A slideshow of our trip is below. I'll be joining the South LA spur at Mercado La Paloma.

Now at 10 miles, Ciclavia started in April and cleared a major street of cars from east Los Angeles to Hollywood.The growth follows the example of the original Ciclovia in Colombia, which started with 7 miles and has 80 miles closed to cars every Sunday.
