CicLAvia has helped propelled bikes and bike culture into Los Angeles’ mainstream. What started out as an import from Bogota in 2010 was quickly adopted in LA culture. At the same time the City of Los Angeles has adopted a wide-ranging Bicycle Master Plan and is improving bike infrastructure around the city.
Please join us for a presentation and discussion of how bikes are changing how we move and experience Los Angeles and where we go from here.
