CicLAvia takes places on April 15; on that Sunday, 10 miles of streets will close to cars — from Melrose to Boyle Heights — cutting three ways through the heart of downtown.

It's a perfect occasion to sample the fruits of our fair city. To aid that pursuit, we've compiled a map cross-referencing our most recent “99 Restaurants,” “Cocktails,” and “Best Of” issues. We've plotted them, along with points of interests and tips, on a handy map. You're welcome.

You can get to CicLAvia via subway, Metrolink, Amtrak or a bike. There are even several “feeder rides” — groups that will meet in the morning and head into the event together — leaving from the Fairfax District, South L.A., West L.A., the San Fernando Valley, and West San Gabriel Valley. All right, all right, you can drive too — if you do, the CicLAvia folks recommend parking a few blocks from the route itself.
