On June 23rd CicLAvia will be back in town, this time with a new six mile east-west route that will run along Wilshire Boulevard between Downtown LA and Fairfax Avenue. Known as “Iconic Wilshire,” this route happens to be the most walkable CicLAvia yet for a handful of reasons:
The Hours Are Long – Previous CicLAvia’s have been held from 10am to 3pm but this one will be two hours longer, from 9am to 4pm (that means more time for walking and running).
It Is Rail Accessible – The Red, Blue, Expo, and Purple Lines all have stops along the route so getting there by transit, or some multi-modal combination, will be a relatively easy.
The Route Is Short – At six miles long, one can easily enjoy much of the route through a leisure walk.
There Are Pedestrian Zones – The hubs at the ends of the Iconic Wilshire route will be pedestrian zones. CicLAvia obviously loves bikes but you’ll have to dismount to cover the entire route and get the full experience this time.
While every CicLAvia welcomes all people-powered modes of travel, this one is especially tailor made for all the pedestrians, runner, dog walkers, and roller skaters out there. We hope you’ll take advantage of the many factors that make this route so walkable and enjoy the route on foot.

See you all there!
