CicLAvia Goes Through South L.A. For The First Time Today! Here's The Map

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

CicLAvia is today, which means you can enjoy the hazy December sun on your bike and not worry about cars! (Or just rub your temples sitting in traffic thanks to some street closures!)The event shuts down a six-mile span of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard between Leimert Park and Central Avenue, and also includes a spur of Central Avenue between Washington Boulevard and Vernon Avenue.

Hubs at Leimert Park, Exposition Park, Jazz Park and Central Avenue will feature live music, food trucks, and farmers markets. Activities include a tour of an urban farm at Exposition Park, a Kwanzaa celebration at the California African American Museum, tours of the Dunbar Hotel (the site of the first national NAACP convention), and free #TechLA workshops at Jazz Park to learn some computer skills. You can find out more at the CicLAvia website.

The event started at 9 a.m. this morning and will be done at 3 p.m., so things will be done before that busy Sunday afternoon commute. Here's the route map for today:

Event organizers partner with the city, the county and Metro and numerous sponsors to make CicLAvia possible. This is the third and final CicLAvia event of the year. Coming up in the spring? CicLAvia hits up The Valley!
