Feb. 25 CicLAvia —the city’s 50th — on Melrose

| January 25, 2024 | 0 Comments

Four miles of Melrose Avenue will temporarily be off-limits to cars for a CicLAvia event on Sun., Feb. 25, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The car-free route along Melrose Avenue, from Fairfax Avenue to Vermont Avenue, will include three hubs where participants can get a quick bicycle tune-up or fuel themselves with food and drink or learn about local organizations and more.

In its 14th year here in Los Angeles County, CicLAvia is free and encourages all ages to bike, walk, jog, stroll or skate along its route. Getting out of your car allows you to see and explore sections of the community from a different perspective.

The event will impact north- and south-bound traffic in and out of Greater Wilshire and Mid City. Crossing points on Melrose are shown on the accompanying map.

This is the organization’s 50th event since 2010. Organizers were inspired by the weekly ciclovío events in Bogotá, Columbia, where that city has been closing its streets to cars for more than 45 years. Our local CicLAvia has inspired more than 1.8 million people to explore — slowly — much of Los Angeles.
