Post Date:July 09, 2019 7:37 AM

ciclaviaCicLAvia—Meet the Hollywoods Presented by Metro will take place on Sunday, August 18, 2019. The City of West Hollywood, Hollywood, and East Hollywood will be transformed into car-free, open streets for the day.

On Sunday, August 18, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., from the Hollywood Walk of Fame to the City of West Hollywood’s rainbow crosswalk, everyone is invited to come along for the ride and walk, bike, roll, and stroll through along the area’s most iconic streets. The event will close Santa Monica Boulevard from N. La Brea Avenue to N. San Vicente Boulevard to vehicle traffic and thousands of cyclists will fill the streets.

CicLAvia is a nonprofit organization that catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation, and good health through car-free streets. CicLAvia engages with people to transform our relationship with our communities and with each other. Inspired by Bogotá’s weekly ciclovía, CicLAvia temporarily closes streets to car traffic and opens them to Angelenos to use as a public park. Free for all, CicLAvia connects communities to each other across an expansive city, creating a safe place to bike, walk, skate, roll, and dance through Los Angeles County. 1.6 million people have experienced CicLAvia; it is the biggest open streets event in the United States.
