Last week, LADOT Bike Blog covered the launch of SCAG’s new bike/ped wiki.  Now that the CicLAvia hangover has started to clear, we’d like to give more in-depth coverage to what the bike/ped wiki does, how it came about, and what it means to the residents of the SCAG region.  LADOT Bike Blog had the pleasure of speaking with Alan Thompson and Margaret Lin of SCAG about the new bike/ped wiki.

There are plenty of other blogs and news websites today talking about last Sunday’s CicLAvia.  We encourage all our readers to go out and peruse the wealth of CicLAvia experiences and information popping up all over the internet today.  We would like to give a big “Thank You” to the CicLAvia steering committee, Mayor Villaraigosa, LAPD, LADOT, all the volunteers and vendors, and the cyclists, pedestrians, and runners who were…

100,000 Strong for CicLAvia


LADOT Bike Blog performed street counts at New Hampshire & Beverley

With some estimates reaching up to 100,000 riders, it’s safe to say that Los Angeles’ first CicLAvia was a success beyond anyone’s dreams.  LADOT Bike Blog was proud to be a part of the counting effort, and rather than give a comprehensive report of the event, we’d like to show you our little slice of CicLAvia.  You can take a look at all our pictures, as always, at our flickr page.

CicLAvia is now only 5 days away, and LADOT Bike Blog can hardly bear the waiting.  We admit to getting giddy feelings every time we see a sign, like the one below, along the route.  Seeing physical proof of the CicLAvia to come just makes the reality even more concrete: LA will shut down 7 miles of street to cars this Sunday so that people may walk, ride, play, and just be.

The signs are also a reminder, however, that there’s still work left to be done; the folks at CicLAvia are still looking for a few volunteers and LADOT Bike Blog urges our readers to give them a helping hand.  We’ve already volunteered for the event and so should you.  You can not only help make this CicLAvia a success, but also help make sure CicLAvias keep coming back again and again.

There are also a whole slate of events taking place during CicLAvia and we’d love to share some of them with you below the fold.


Are you ready for CicLAvia? We sure are!
