Los Angeles’ fifth CicLAvia heads from Expo Park up Figueroa past USC all the way the USC Health Sciences Campus in Boyle Heights. You just have to get on your bike to enjoy streets that are open only for bikes - NO CARS ALLOWED.

Today Sunday, October 7, from 10 am-3 pm 9.1 miles of normally congested streets is a linear park for strolling and  biking. The route connects our world-class museums of Exposition Park with the architectural landmarks surrounding the newly completed Grand Park in the city’s civic center.

Organizers anticipate that more than 100,000 Angelenos will participate in CicLAvia.
The CicLAvia route includes six hubs, each situated in the heart of a unique neighborhood and accessible by Metro Rail: MacArthur Park; Exposition Park; Grand Park at Civic Center; Central Plaza in Chinatown; and Mariachi Plaza and Soto Station in Boyle Heights.

YOU DON"T HAVE TO REGISTER. THERE IS NO FEE. JUST COME OUT AND ENJOY YOUR CITY.

According to the LATIMES.com - Many groups have shifted their weekend activities to coincide with CicLAvia, including the California African American Museum, which is hosting a slate of events Sunday including the Ace Dance Team, singer Jason Powell and music group Las Cafeteras, who are scheduled to play at 3:20 p.m., just after CicLAvia finishes.
