Right in the heart of Los Angeles. In fact, they're calling this one "Heart of L.A." Organizers this week announced that the unique, closed-streets bike ride is returning to downtown and environs:
Organizers say the Oct. 6 ride, CicLAvia's eighth since 2010, will hit Chinatown, Olvera Street, the Historic Core, Boyle Heights, Westlake, Little Tokyo, Central Avenue and Grand Park.
They say June's ride down Wilshire Boulevard, a first, attracted nearly 400,000 people. CicLAvia says of the next one:
More than 150,000 people will engage with the historic city center, cultural districts, businesses and each other in ways that aren't possible in a car.
'CicLAvia -- Heart of L.A.' will allow participants to enjoy downtown by foot, bike, skates or other nonmotorized transport.
The 7.4-mile, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ride in October doesn't appear to have a route map yet. We'll keep you posted.
