My friend Lisa and I attended the past weekend’s Ciclavia in downtown Los Angeles (DTLA). The day was originally planned to go bridesmaid dress shopping in Korea Town but when we found out it was Ciclavia, we changed our plans to check out this massive biking event.
History of Ciclavia
Ciclavia originated from Bogata, Columbia over 30 years ago to give residences a break from the daily congestion caused by automobiles. It’s now an event that’s celebrated throughout Latin America and United States. During Ciclavia, a predetermined area is closed off from vehicular traffic. Only bikes and pedestrians are allowed to travel on the road.
