CicLAvia Takes Over the Harbor Area for the First Time

For the first time, CicLAvia came to the Harbor Area on Sunday, August 13, for the open streets event that played home to hundreds of bicyclists from all over Los Angeles. Businesses that are typically closed on Sundays opened their doors to invite participants to shop local. The typically overly trafficked Avalon Boulevard was transformed into a corridor for cyclist, skaters and people who just wanted to take a stroll on the hot summer day. Organizations like Communities for a Better Environment, SBCC Thrive L.A.’s “I Heart Wilmington,” the local YMCA, the Avalon Arts & Cultural Alliance and many more were present providing information on their initiatives and passing out free snacks and water for cyclist.

This event was monumental for Wilmington, a neighborhood that too often gets overlooked by the City of Los Angeles and is overly trafficked by rig trucks traveling in and out of the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.

Take a look at some of these photos from the weekend event.

  1. My family had a great time riding bikes in the streets that we usually drive our vehicles on during our daily commutes. Thanks to the community,traffic and law enforcement, it was a spectacular event and was honored to participate. Everyone can’t wait till ciclavia comes back to the streets of the LA Harbor. Blessed to be part of a great community. CICLAVIA 2017 ROCKED!!

    CicLAvia also attracted Providence Little Company of Mary Community Health who was there all day collaborating with the YMCA and providing info and giving away water bottles to riders on the path. Over 300 water handed out it was fun!

    I took a picture at your booths but never got it emailed to me. I was with a black bike pulling a swing babt trailer but with a speaker in it.
