YES! CicLAvia, presented by METRO, is coming to the San Fernando Valley on March 22. What’s even better is the first 2015 Ciclavia will be in the NoHo Arts District! You’ll be able to travel between North Hollywood and Studio City on car-free streets, using foot, pedal and non-motorized wheel power. Yes, that means there are no cars on the route so you can bike, walk, skate, and enjoy the neighborhoods. Combined, the NoHo Arts District dot Com team has been to seven Ciclavia events. So believe us when we say they are fun events where you get to know a neighborhood with a bunch of great people all happy to be outside and car free. So let’s show L.A. some NoHo and Valley pride on Sunday, March 22!
When: Sunday, March 22 from 9AM-4PM
Where: Metro Presents CicLAvia – The Valley will run along Lankershim Boulevard between the North Hollywood Metro Red Line stop at Chandler Boulevard and the Universal Studio Red Line stop, and along Ventura Boulevard between Campo de Cahuenga and Coldwater Canyon. The route will highlight some of the gems of the East Valley including the NoHo Arts District, Universal City, the historic Campo de Cahuenga, Studio City Farmers Market and the famed Sportsmen’s Lodge.
“People are always asking us ‘When are you coming to the Valley?’ and we are thrilled we can finally tell them, ‘March 22!’” said CicLAvia co-founder and Executive Director Aaron Paley, a proud Valley native. “This is our first time in the Valley and it is by no means our last. We plan on making our spring slot an annual exploration of different parts of the great San Fernando Valley.”
“I’m so proud to welcome CicLAvia to the Valley for the first time this spring,” said LA City Councilmember and Metro Board Member Paul Krekorian. “It is going to be a phenomenal and rewarding event for San Fernando Valley residents and people throughout the region. CicLAvia, Metro and I have worked in close partnership with the community for months to create a fun, family-friendly day on a route that will showcase local neighborhoods and businesses. Everyone should come out to enjoy our public streets and help us inaugurate this new Valley tradition.”
This CicLAvia – The Valley route travels almost exclusively through Council District 2, represented by Councilmember Krekorian, who was fundamental to making this San Fernando Valley event happen.
“As someone born and raised in the Valley, and as Metro Chair, I’m especially proud that Metro is sponsoring the very first Valley CicLAvia to give Angelenos a chance to enjoy a new open space and explore our neighborhoods from a new perspective,” said Los Angeles Mayor and Metro Board Chair Eric Garcetti. “This is a great opportunity for people to see how Metro can get them where they need to go without driving.”
